Murfreesboro, TN - Seniors Helping Seniors recently stumbled upon some positive news for local businesses in our area, news that could give small business owners a helping hand while creating more jobs and more opportunities.  Hello Alice, in partnership with GEN, the Small Business Growth Fund, invites applications from small businesses in need of capital to apply and possibly receive help. 

Grants of up to $25,000, provided by Mastercard, will be awarded to help small businesses accelerate their growth and achieve their goals in 2023. Applicants must commit to their customers and community and have a clear plan for how the funds will help them achieve a significant growth milestone in 2023.

To be eligible, applicants must be a for-profit business with less than $1 million in 2021 gross annual revenue. 

At the start of 2021, Hello Alice awarded $5,000 grants to 50-entrepreneurs from “underrepresented communities.” 86% Of those businesses were owned by persons of color, 72% were owned by a woman and 20% were affiliated with the military. The common thread that all 50 of the businesses had… IMPACT. Each of the 50-businesses that received a grant prospered in a way that positively helped the community locally.
