WHAT IS IT?
LTD START UP is a brand new initiative that will provide $L100,000 to a business in Second Life to help their development and projects going into 2016.
We have always been dedicated and passionate about supporting not only the big name current brands, but also the new and smaller names trying to break into the market.
HOW IT WORKS:
Starting June 1st 2015, applications will open on our website where businesses within the Home & Garden/Lifestyle community in Second Life can enter to be in with a chance of winning the investment. Below, you will find the process timeline:
- Applications open between 1st & 4th of the month (June – December 2015)
- After applications close each month, LTD Staff will read through them and narrow them down to just 2. This process happens every month until the final round in December.
- In December, a total of 14 applicants will be in with a chance of winning the grant. At this point, respectable members of the community will help LTD Staff choose ONE business to win the prize. During this stage, the applicant will have an interview with us and answer more questions. This is for us to ensure we are investing money in the right place.
- The winner will be announced on January 1st 2016.

OUR ADVICE TO APPLICANTS

You will be asked a lot of questions as we will need to know as much as possible about you and what you would like the investment for. This is because after all, this is Second Life. We want to be sure we know our investment is going to the right place and for the right reasons.
