The Capital Projects Feasibility Programme (CPFP) Grant
CPFP Grant is a cost-sharing grant that contributes to the cost of feasibility studies likely to lead to projects that will increase local exports and stimulate the market for South African capital goods and services. The grant is offered to a maximum of 50% of the total costs of the feasibility study for projects outside Africa and 55% of the total costs of the feasibility study for projects in Africa and is capped at R8 million.

A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. Dream Team Capital can assist if you are thinking of starting a new, expanding your current or purchasing an existing business and require the development of a professional Business Plan. Our developments are often used to create a vision for a business venture, secure funding, secure non-repayable business grants, attract team members and/or managing the business.
