Senior Associate Bekay Ahn (Seoul, Korea) authors new book                     The Art and Science of Grant Proposals
Crafting a compelling grant proposal hinges on a strategic sequence, starting with a robust idea that underscores innovation and relevance. This book explores the essence of grant proposals across four key inquiries: soundness of the idea, team capability, financial feasibility, and market existence.
  • Idea: The cornerstone of any impactful project, a compelling idea sets the stage for the proposal, highlighting its uniqueness and potential impact. 
  • Team: Demonstrating a qualified team reassures funders of the project’s feasibility.
  • Funding: Outlining a financial strategy ensures the project’s execution from start to finish.
  • Market: Showing a clear market need affirms the project’s long-term viability.

This sequence not only showcases the project’s potential but also its alignment with funder’s priorities, emphasizing a well-prepared proposal’s capacity to make a significant impact.
