Today’s women and founders of color gain capital with EnrichHER; the only digital platform that connects women and founders of color to capital to scale their business. This week, EnrichHER announced its finalists and winner of April’s EnrichHER Small Business Grant contest ( SAFE, LLC ).
From emergency SMS software to digital marketing consulting to a non-profit for ex-felons, this winning crop of founders are entrepreneurs with heart.
These businesses were chosen out of over 500 entries and were evaluated based on need, their business idea and pitch. The winner receives a $5,000 grant; the finalists are awarded $500 and a scholarship to the EnrichHER Business Accelerator Program, a five-week training series that coaches participants on how to raise funds for their businesses.
