Got a grant from the i-lab or another competition? Two accountants will walk you through the practical and tax implications.
How much can you spend of the total amount award? What paperwork do you need? Not sure if it should go to you personally or your venture/non profit? Have you heard that sometimes there are extra considerations if you are a foreign national or your entity is based abroad? Wish someone would walk you through the accounting 101? That is what this workshop is for.
