An important part of Bring it on! is the speed dating with staff of the Fund and a number of other organizations. During a speed date, you can ask all your questions about subsidy possibilities, Fund policy and, of course, briefly test out your idea.
Would you like to know more about the possibilities of a grant programme? Are you interested in an open call? Perhaps you would like to know more about the options of an interest-free loan from Fonds Kwadraat, or do you have questions about your professional practice which the BNO can help you with?
Sign up: use the registration form to let us know which question(s) you have. We will then organize a brief meeting with a Fund employee or an external expert. The speed dates are not meant to be used to present your portfolio or a concept application. Due to limited capacity, it is advisable to respond quickly.
Timetable for speed dating:
14.30 - 15.30
15.30 - 16.30
