R&D GRANTS AND FUNDING TO BUILD INNOVATIVE CAPACITY




FUNDING INCENTIVES FOR THE PRIVATE SECTOR

South African government agencies offer a range of incentive schemes that are intended to stimulate and facilitate the development of businesses through incentives. These funding schemes can assist your company in funding new innovations that ultimately create new jobs and commercially viable enterprises.

The funding categories generally mirror the stages involved in project development, namely:

  • Conceptualisation of the project, including feasibility studies and research and development;
  • Capital expenditure, involving the creation or expansion of the productive capacity of businesses; and
  • Competitiveness enhancement, involving the introduction of efficiencies and whetting the competitive edge of established companies and commercial or industrial sectors
