Every month, we give one $500 grant to business owner in the US to invest in their existing business.
No strings attached.
No equity required.
We review each grant submission against our 5C Framework which analyzes five key components that successful businesses need to navigate:
- Context - Why is the market in your favor?
- Content - What's your compelling core narrative?
- Community - Have you found or created a community?
- Chemistry - Have you found your special sauce?
- Commerce - How do you make money?
Each applicant gets feedback in the form of their overall Freed score and recommendations to grow their business based on our review.
Applicants also receive a two-month free membership in our virtual community, the Freed Studio.
The Studio is a safe and supportive space that brings together ambitious business owners to identify and implement the practices, processes, and systems needed for sustainable growth to help them get to their first (or next) $1 million in revenue.
Grant recipients are also eligible to receive an additional end-of-year grant of $2,500.
