Immigrant Entrepreneur Grants

DIVERSEcity Immigrant Entrepreneur Grants

As part of our Immigrant Entrepreneur Program and DIVERSEcity Entrepreneur & Small Business Fair, DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society awards three Immigrant Entrepreneur Grants each valued at $1,000.

The grants are awarded to three exceptional immigrant entrepreneurs who have:

1. Demonstrated strong skills/willingness to pursue and realize their business ideas.
2. Presented the ability to network and embrace new ideas/feedback.
3. Coordinated and organized possible resources to implement their business plan.

The grants are available to businesses at any stage of operations, but preference will be given to new businesses under three years of operations, and to start-up companies that are just preparing to launch. The winners are chosen by a third-party selection committee organized by DIVERSEcity. We will announce our Immigrant Entrepreneur Grant Recipients for 2019 at the fair.
