The Next Grant Contest is Scheduled for June 15, 2018 — Colorado-based company, Founding Foods, received $10,000 to help scale a business that’s controlling an invasive species
Nav.com, a free site and app for small business owners to access their business credit scores and get matched to financing options, announced the winner of its inaugural “Legitify Your Small Business Grant.” The contest, launched in February, awarded $10,000in cash to founder and CEO of Founding Foods, Rachel Irons.
The response to the grant contest was inspiring. In total, Nav received an incredible 347 submissions. To be considered, one of the main requirements was writing a brief story about a business challenge the business owner was facing or had overcome.
“We were blown away by the perseverance shown by the applicants’ stories and it underscored the tenacity required to follow your business dream,” said Lydia Roth, Nav’s marketing manager who spearheaded the project. “Access to financing, like business loans and business credit cards was a common pain point.”
