Grow your company with a grant for diverse-small businesses in Texas.

A total of $100,000 will be awarded to 25 businesses in Texas

The Founders First Job Creators Quest Grant is one of many ways small businesses can apply for the capital needed to grow. As part of our mission to provide continued education to founders, all grant recipients also receive a scholarship to one of our acclaimed accelerator programs. Grant money can be used as growth capital to hire or rehire premium wage jobs. Cash infusion can be used to purchase, fix or enhance equipment necessary to help manage growth challenges and scale for the future. 

We will relaunch the grant program in 2024. 

 Please visit the Grant FAQ page or contact us for more information.
