Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) often face significant challenges when it comes to accessing funding for their businesses. However, Stella Adebayo, the founder of BizGrant, a financial education technology platform, is making it easier for SMEs to access grant funding and achieve success. In this interview, she shares her expertise in the world of grant funding and shares inspiring success stories from business owners who have received grants through BizGrant’s services.

BizGrant is a financial education technology platform that provides young startups, entrepreneurs, and small to medium businesses with business registration services and access to information on grants, other funding sources, and business growth opportunities through online courses, training, webinars, masterclasses, newsletters, and a virtual community.

Stella Adebayo, the founder of BizGrant, started the company after winning a grant for her private nursery, primary, and secondary school business in Lagos. As she experienced firsthand the challenges that small businesses face in accessing finance, she decided to create a WhatsApp community to teach other businesses for free how to leverage grant opportunities for their businesses.

Since then, BizGrant has evolved into a team of nine and has trained over 5,000 SMEs on funding opportunities. The platform has cumulatively generated more than $450,000 / N330 Million and currently has over 900 paid subscribers and over 500 registered businesses. Many of BizGrant’s customers have opened business bank accounts, separated their personal finance from their business, achieved impressive sales targets, grown their revenue by over 50%, and created more jobs. BizGrant now has customers across Nigeria and Ghana.

BizGrant offers a comprehensive online course called the Grant Winning Blueprint, which contains six modules, 26 video lessons, and seven worksheets and templates to help business owners learn how to grow their businesses faster with grant opportunities.

The course is based on the roadmap that Stella has used to build and grow her businesses over the past four years, leveraging all the benefits and rewards of grant opportunities. In addition to the core modules, she has also included an extra module that teaches business owners how to earn money consistently by becoming an expert grant writer and providing grant writing services to busy SMEs.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the demand for grant funding and the services offered by BizGrant. Demand for their services increased by over 500% as many SMEs had to create an online presence for their brands. BizGrant has leveraged social media to educate small businesses, particularly those struggling, on the benefits of grant opportunities for their businesses.

There are many testimonials from business owners who have benefited from BizGrant’s services, including securing business contracts, increased patronage, visibility, and credibility for their businesses. According to Etimbuk Imuk of Eti Farms Global, “I am grateful to be a part of the BizGrant community because of the valuable resources and support they provide.
Recently, I saw a post about a live pitch session with Pastor Tobi of Wealth nxtion and decided to join. It was a fortunate decision as I was given the opportunity to pitch my business and ultimately received a grant.

I highly recommend BizGrant to any business owner looking for funding or support.” Israel Smart, a successful entrepreneur, also shared his experience with BizGrant, saying “Your guidance and inspiration have been invaluable to me. Earlier this year, I received a grant prize of 300K from FMN for innovation in sustainable food systems. After receiving the grant, I reached out to FMN to explore a potential partnership and we are now working together. Thank you, BizGrant.”
