Anyone can apply for a grant, whether they’re an entrepreneur or not. Applications are submitted through the Diia portal with a business plan.

To get a grant, you have to create jobs. This can be one or two for a microgrant or several dozen for other programs.

The grant money is paid back to the state in taxes and fees paid by the company within three years.
