Job Creators Quest Grant: Giving $100K to Small Businesses

Just wanted to let you know that time is running out to apply for a Job Creators Quest Grant in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Get a $100K Grant for Your Small Business

We’ve set aside $100,000 to support 30 small businesses in cash awards ranging from $1,500 to $10,000. But that’s not all! If you’re chosen, you’ll also receive a full tuition scholarship to a Founders First accelerator program. This program will help you grow your business, boost your revenue, and make it more profitable.

Who Can Apply for a Job Creators Quest Grant?

For this grant, your business needs to be located in Pennsylvania or New Jersey. You should currently have a team of 2 to 20 people, and be planning to hire even more employees for high-paying jobs in the next year.

I want to let you know about an amazing opportunity for entrepreneurs like you. If you’re the founder of a for-profit business and come from an underserved community – including people of color, women, LGBTQIA+ individuals, or military veterans – you’re eligible to apply for a grant. Even if you’re not from an underserved community, your business can still qualify if it’s located in a low-to-moderate income area.

Now, let’s talk about the criteria for this grant. To be eligible, your company must have an annual revenue between $100,000 and $3 million. But that’s not all – your revenue should come from a service-based business model. In other words, you need to have at least one stream of revenue that serves other businesses.

The Founders First Grant Process

Let me break it down for you. On the Founders First website, they talk about how they give out grants to help diverse businesses thrive and create high-paying jobs. They’re giving away a total of $100,000 to 30 small businesses. Some businesses will get a $10,000 grant, some will get $5,000, and others will get either $2,500 or $1,500. But that’s not all! Each grant recipient will also get to participate in one of Founders First CDC’s awesome business accelerator programs for free!

Now, you might be wondering how they decide who gets the grants. Well, they look for businesses that have proven they can keep their workforce going strong during the pandemic. They also want to see businesses that are dedicated to creating good-paying jobs in their communities. In fact, over 500 diverse-led small businesses have already taken part in Founders First programs to boost their revenue, profitability, and team size.

Let me break it down for you. Founders First explained how they will pay the grant once they confirm the recipients. Here’s how it goes: I’ll get the grant money in two payments. First, they will send me half of the cash grant within 60 days after I sign the terms and conditions, fill out the W-9 form, and set up the payment system. Then, the remaining amount will come within 60 days after my business completes the eligible accelerator program. Cool, right?

Helping Businesses Grow with Grant Money

Now, let’s talk about what I can do with that grant money. I have a few options. I can use it to buy, repair, or upgrade the equipment I need to handle the challenges of growing my business and prepare for the future. But you know what? Founders First says that I can actually use the grant money in any way I think will help my business grow. How awesome is that?
