LGBTQ+ PRIDE MONTH: GRANTS AND LOANS
In celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride Month, NJPCC has partnered with the Women's Center for Entrepreneurship NJ and the Small Business Administration (SBA) to share opportunities for small business owners and entrepreneurs of the LGBTQ+ Community, as well as general funding options in a webinar.
At the top of the hour, the New Jersey Pride Chamber of Commerce will share networking resources and how to become a certified LGBTBE business and how to best position yourself as a small business owner to gain contracts.
In the latter half of this webinar, we'll focus on sharing current programming for grants, micro-loans and other funding options to help LGBTQ+-owned small businesses thrive.
We will be joined by special guests from the New Jersey Pride Chamber of Commerce: Andrea Garcia, NJPCC Board Director & VP of Marketing, Founder & CEO of COMMS/NATION LLC and Stephanie Lokker, NJPCC Board Director & VP of Supplier Diversity and Certification, Founder & CEO of Lockerbie & Co.
The pandemic disproportionately impacted the LGBTQ+ community. Although, historically, LGBTQ+ members lead the up-and-coming sectors, innovative technologies, and help shape mass culture. This demographic of people will once again overcome any obstacles in their path as they continue to fight for equality time and time again. Come find out how the NJ LGBTQ+ community is on course to become one of the most forward thinking states in the country. And, they mean business about it.
