Quorum and PFund Foundation are offering a capacity building grant paired with education sessions and technical support to Minneapolis LGBTQ+ BIPOC owned businesses impacted by the protests following the murder of George Floyd and the outbreak of COVID-19.
Our community Review Committee will select 15 business that meet our guidelines to receive a $5,000 grant and 3-5 education sessions with complementary technical support to help re-invigorate impacted businesses.
To qualify, your business must,
- Be located in Minneapolis
- Be owned (minimum 50%) by persons who meet ALL of the following criteria:
- Business in operation before February 1, 2020
In addition to the $5,000 grant, recipients will be offered a series of hour-long education sessions on topics important to business development, such as human resources, finances, legal, and technology. Following each education session, recipients can sign-up for a free 1-hour consultation with the session consultant to receive advice and strategies unique to their business.
The goal of this fund is to build capacity and invest in our diverse business community. This program is offered due to support from the Minneapolis Foundation.
