The consistent variable for those that have found happiness in their career as a grant professional is the strength of a strong coach and/or mentor in their professional life. #Grantchat, a program of SmartEGrants, began to address the need to provide more consistent and high-quality support of grant professionals utilizing the power of social media. SmartEGrants takes the power of social media, the strength of networking, and the enthusiasm of grant professionals for the work they do in order to create a truly unique learning and coaching environment to coach and connect grant professionals and grant seeking organizations to grow and succeed.
