Pitch Competition Grants & Support Program for Underrepresented Founders in West & South Side Chicago
The SECOND #NewPattern Coalition
Originally developed by Beta Boom, #NewPattern is a movement that seeks to promote and celebrate founders from various backgrounds in order to change the narrative that diverse founders can and do create successful companies. This movement also aims to advance the fact that companies that seek to serve the needs of a greater variety of people are tremendous opportunities for economic growth and investment.
The New Pattern grant will allocate up to $10,000 to awardees along with matching operational support and mentorship in areas such as marketing, finance, and fundraising through our community partners to help advance companies onto a sustaining growth path.
Grants will be awarded through a series of pitch competitions in collaboration with our coalition partners.
