The Big Idea

Small Business Grant

What do Facebook, DreamWorks, PayPal, and Apple have in common? Each was founded or co-founded by someone from the LGBTQ community. With an estimated 1.6 million LGBTQ-owned businesses in the U.S., it’s not surprising that LGBTQ people have built some of the most successful companies on earth. That being said, everyone must start somewhere.

We know that things have been tough on businesses big and small, and because of these circumstances, you may be putting off one of your big ideas to bring your business to the next level. If you were given $5,000 to improve your business, how would you spend it? Now’s your chance to bring your big idea to fruition.

Educational Grant

The most successful leaders and business owners never stop learning. If you were given $5,000 to improve your knowledge and/or business-related skills, how would you spend it?

The GLCCNV / Cox Business Educational Grant offers financial assistance to help a current or future small-business owner (who is also a member of the GLCCNV) with an investment in their business education (i.e., certification, degree, staff training/education, etc.).
