Introducing The EE Program
The Equitable Entrepreneurship program is an initiative from Idea Foundry supporting immigrant and minority entrepreneurs and small business owners in our region. We are looking for participants with an idea for a small business, an existing small business looking to scale, or an idea-stage innovation. Applicants are not limited to innovation-based businesses. Our program emphasizes region-wide opportunities not limited or focused on any one neighborhood.
Selected applicants will receive:
3 months of individualized, hands-on business development services and support from our staff
Up to $10,000 investment loans: $5,000 in cash + $5,000 value in services, without collateral or personal guarantees and payments based on business success
