Did you apply for round 1 of HK D-Biz funding? The good news is round 2 is now open for application. Here are the common FAQs to get successful 100% funding for your D-Biz fund application
Round 1 application i applied for 2 categories but only 1 category was approved and the second category was rejected, what should i do?
You still need to accept round 1 category by logging in online (prepare your BR number and check email for the OTP sent for login) to check status. If your approved amount is different from the quotation amount, you need to send revised quotation to HKPC via email
My first round of application was approved but i am not satisfied with the amount of funding?
You have few options, A. talk to the vendor and see what they can offer for the approved funding amount and if ok, then ask them to send you revised quote (this means you will accept the funding amount and proceed with project, so you will need to do online acceptance above.
Option B : reject this funding amount (need to login online also to reject), and then in round 2, resubmit this quotation with same vendor or new vendor and see if you will get a better amount this round. Do note, HKPC has the right to reject the project, or they might approve the project with the bigger / higher amount as they deemed suitable)
If i submitted 3 category in round 1, can i apply for round 2 DBIZ funding?
Yes you can, just login and submit the round 2 with new quotations and round 2 you can apply for 3 categories (but it cannot be for the same category you have accepted in round 1)
