$25K Equity-Free Grant for Founders in the US + Puerto Rico. Please Share!

Hello there! 

My name is Elisabeth, and I'm the Head of Community of Grid110, a startup accelerator based in Los Angeles. I am reaching out because our applications for our next national-based cohort are open, and I think some founders in the Elpha community might be a good fit for our next program!

A little bit about Grid110:

  • In the last seven years, we've supported 250 early-stage entrepreneurs
  • Our portfolio companies have gone on to raise $82M and get accepted to larger accelerators such as Y-Combinator, Techstars, etc.
  • 94% of our portfolio companies are led by a female founder, Black, or LatinX founder.

Until September 30, we will search far and wide for the best early-stage entrepreneurs and small business owners nationwide (US + Puerto Rico) looking to uplevel their businesses.

For this program, we are partnering with Slauson & Co. to run Friends & Family, a 12-week program that helps emerging entrepreneurs strengthen their businesses and prepare to raise capital. Entrepreneurs selected for Friends & Family will receive a $25,000 cash grant to help offset startup costs, serve as their "Friends & Family" round, and receive startup mentorship through Grid110's network and accelerator program.

You can check out Applications and Program Details here.

I hope to see your application come through!
