We are excited to announce that, thanks to Hatch, our corporate partner, the New Entrepreneur Training Program at the SF LGBT Center now offers participants the chance to win a $5000 grant! Hatch is a local Fintech company offering low-cost business checking accounts to small businesses.

The SF LGBT Center New Entrepreneur Training Program is an eight-week training program where five to seven new entrepreneurs from different businesses (pre-existing or not) will work as a cohort in a mutually supportive environment to develop their respective businesses from the ground up.

At the end of each cohort, the entrepreneurs will present their business plans to a panel of judges, which will include lawyers, serial entrepreneurs, business consultants, and potential investors/lenders, and a winner will be chosen based on select criteria to receive the $5000 grant.

We accept applications year-round on a rolling basis and a new cohort starts around every nine weeks. This next cohort will start on September 15, 2021. To learn more and to apply, please follow the below link. Currently, the application is open to individuals and small businesses based in San Francisco only.
