Verizon Commits $2.5M to entrepreneurs in under-served communities
Yesterday LISC announced that Verizon has committed $2.5 million to provide critical relief to small businesses facing immediate financial threat because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will go to make grants of up to $10,000, especially to entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically under-served places who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital. More information, including how and when small businesses can apply can be found here: https://www.lisc.org/covid-19/verizon-small-business-recovery-fund/
This Fund is part of Verizon’s Pay It Forward Campaign, a new weekly livestream series featuring big names in entertainment.
