eBay Up & Running Grants

eBay is giving back to the small businesses powering America. In partnership with Hello Alice, eBay is awarding more than $500,000 in grants and education resources to support U.S. small businesses with the resources they need to scale, grow and thrive.

The eBay Up & Running Grants program will award 50 eBay business sellers with grant packages of $10,000, including cash, eBay education and coaching, and more. This year, eBay is expanding its grant with an additional stipend worth up to $500 for each grantee to apply to eBay Refurbished office equipment, technology and tools to keep their small businesses up and running.

Congratulations to the 2023 Up & Running Grant Recipients!

Hello Alice and eBay are pleased to announce the recipients of the Up & Running grant program. Fifty sellers were chosen to each receive $10,000 in cash and coaching through the eBay Academy.

“Receiving this grant has proven my efforts are paying off and will push me to keep going in order to make my dreams come true,” says Michelle Nguyen, founder of Emmi’s Closet and 2022 grant recipient.  “I plan to use the funding to expand my inventory and start production on my own brand.”
