Keeping the entrepreneurial dream alive
A $100,000 grant fund for new businesses, and a dream team of 40+ world class startup mentors. 10 winning companies. Applications are open now.
Today, Supermaker announced the Entrepreneurial Dream Project, a $100,000 grant fund and mentor network supporting the growth of new businesses during COVID-19.
Funds will be dispersed equally amongst two winning applicants, and ten select companies will receive mentoring from the Supermaker Mentor Network. The network includes a dream team of 40+ acclaimed business leaders from Mark Cuban to Rebecca Minkoff, and experts from companies including Unilever, Harry's, Adidas, Seventh Generation, Colgate, Blavity, Create & Cultivate, and many more. Submissions for round one are open now until June 15th, 2020. A full list of mentors can be found here.
As part of the program, Supermaker is also looking forward to featuring behind the scenes stories and insights from the exceptional, award-winning founders and their generous mentors. We look forward to rallying and engaging the Supermaker community in support of aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs everywhere.
We believe in the power of Supermaker to support an ambitious entrepreneurial future for the business leaders of tomorrow.
With small businesses under threat, and ambitions waning in the face of pandemic and mounting downturn, the Entrepreneurial Dream Project provides for those building in the face of adversity.
Through the Entrepreneurial Dream Project, Supermaker is on a mission to support the next generation of business leaders. We hope you’ll participate or share the program with a founder in need, and support our efforts to help keep the entrepreneurial dream alive.
