Soda Seed Grants were developed during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic to support businesses by giving them a cash injection when they needed it most. Soda continues to offer seed grants throughout the year as a way to support New Zealand start-ups. Soda Seed Grants offer more than just financial assistance. Applicants will also receive feedback on their idea and finalists will receive a customised mentoring session.
We love to support New Zealand start-ups. If you need a financial boost to take your idea or business to the next level, our Seed Grants might be just what you need. Our next Seed Grant round is in September 2021.
By entering Soda’s Seed Grant competition I overcame some major barriers, and afterwards my business was on a whole new level. We were suddenly quite high profile and everyone started to take us seriously. Winning helped give me the courage and conviction to go get my dreams and goals.
