I am excited to announce Opportunity Fund’s first-ever Start-up Funding Challenge.  This project is designed to help us identify strong start-up prospects and to offer funding to these important job creators in our communities.  Opportunity Fund is soliciting applications from eligible entrepreneurs, and will provide grants of up to $5,000 to the top two Challenge applicants to help their young businesses.  We will also review all applications for possible loan funding up to $50,000. The nuts and bolts of the project are on the website at www.opportunityfund.org/startup; I have also attached a flyer, overview and application form.


Please help us spread the word about the Start-Up Funding Challenge!  Please share this information with your colleagues, clients, communities, friends and families and help us find entrepreneurs who truly need this funding.  Please feel free to pass along this information through your internal and external networks.


Applications will be accepted through April 15th, but will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.   Questions can be emailed tostartup2012@opportunityfund.orgor feel free to contact me.
