June 14, 2022 < 1 min read Tembi Gray, founder of GMG Performing Arts Center, smiles for her portrait.

We’re proud to announce the first round of recipients of the Local Business Support Fund grant program!

What is the Local Business Support Fund?

Hello Alice and the Global Entrepreneurship Network, in partnership with LISC,  are awarding $5,000 grants to five small businesses that provide solutions in their local communities. Along with generating less than $1M in annual revenue, these small businesses share a steadfast commitment to their customers and community, and a clear plan to use their grant funds!

”The funds from this grant will help launch our grassroots marketing campaign as we not only raise awareness of The Young Musician’s University but also the importance and many benefits of music education,” says recipient Tembi Gray of the GMG Performing Arts Center.

The recipients listed below will receive a $5,000 grant. Congratulations to all these inspiring entrepreneurs!
