Interested in starting or growing a business? ULaunch provides scholarships designated for Under-Represented, Lower-Income and/or Lower-Wealth entrepreneurs. Successful applicants will participate in the 10-week LaunchIt training program and, upon successful completion, be eligible to receive limited startup funds.
Criteria that will be evaluated:
- Business opportunity
- Entrepreneurial spirit
- Household income
Applicants must submit the application (see below) along with their most recent household tax return, most recent three months of pay stubs (if applicable), and a letter of recommendation by February 1, 2019 to be considered. While household income is only one of the criteria evaluated, as a guide this program is focused on supporting entrepreneurs whose household income is not substantially above Area Median Income (AMI).
If you have questions, or if you’re not sure whether you qualify from a financial standpoint, please contact Mary Tapolsky (firstname.lastname@example.org, 502-852-0197) to discuss.
