“Hello Alice, a free platform that guides business owners through the growth of their company, is reigniting the Business for All initiative. In partnership with Verizon, #BusinessForAll is a nationwide movement led by entrepreneurs, celebrities, business support organizations, and corporate executives that provides the opportunity for mentorship and funding to small business owners nationwide. Hello Alice pivoted efforts in March to provide a dedicated resource center and over $2 million in emergency grants to support small businesses affected by COVID-19. Now Hello Alice and Verizon will provide new money for Business for All grants between $10,000 and $50,000, along with mentorship opportunities, resources and more through the Hello Alice platform. Grants will be open to all owners with a special focus on the New Majority — women, people of color, LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs, military affiliated business owners, and entrepreneurs with disabilities.”

I want the conversation around supporting women of color as entrepreneurs and founders to become the mainstream conversation.
