Hints & Tips
These articles were written as general feedback to the grant applicant fields we have seen during the short history of the competition.

The contents are specifically tailored to companies attempting to become national branded jewelry firms. They will not be as applicable to smaller, local businesses. However, some of the general principles may still be helpful.
