    Frequently asked questions

    (I) Question: how should the time plan/project plan be formatted?

    Answer: Start by describing where in the start-up process you are. Some projects have been ongoing for some time, while others were just initiated, or have not started yet. Continue with a short description of how you intend to work with the project during the summer months (jun-aug), after which you may delve deeper into the economics of your venture - how you intend to your the money you're applying for (i.e. investments or other uses - se question 2.)

     

    (II) Question: Do I have to specify a budget? 

    Answer: No. What's important is that we get an idea of how you intend to use the scholarship. Do you need to buy anything specific to succeed with your idea? Like for instance, ingredients to a new food product/pilot study, machinery, a new homepage, or maybe something to cover the cost for a programmer to develop a new app?

     

    (III) Question: If I win the scholarship, when will the funds be transferred to my account?

    Answer: Our intention is to transfer the money during the period June-July.
