Ventures often need quality, specialised and experienced support to get investment and contract ready.  As a result, the Fund is designed to provide significant resources to meet the costs of these specialist inputs as well as the costs to the venture.  The Fund will enable providers to support ventures from their existing and new network with a confident, but effective investment or contract readiness plan.
