After working in local government, international development and business, Jessie Ballantyne (Founder & Managing Director) saw the need for an easy-to-use grants search website that would help people find 'all that money' out there. Her aim was to turn the elusive idea of grants into something that became real for organisations.
In 2012, Jessie got Owen Anderson (Manager of Design, Innovation & Marketing) on board, and they started building The Grants Hub. Many, many hours were spent brainstorming ideas, drawing up sketches on rolls of paper, and surveying people to find out what their grants needs were.
After months of sheer hard work, determination, ridiculously late nights and ample supplies of coffee, The Grants Hub was launched in June 2013.
We now have hundreds of members and consulting clients Australia-wide and are proud to be Australia's leading grants directory and consulting service.
