HELPING CT BUSINESSES GROW & THRIVE
At the CTSBP III in November, we officially unveiled the CT Small Business Party Grant Program: a new source of community-raised capital benefiting four amazing Connecticut entrepreneurial ventures per year (one recipient per quarter). The mission of this grant program is to empower the hardworking, creative, and wildly talented small business owners and artisan makers of Connecticut with the tools they need to grow an area of their business and continue to make a positive impact in our community.
At every party, in addition to our free, attendee-only raffle, we are going to feature a big-ticket grand prize raffle open to CTSBP attendees and the public alike. Tickets for the CTSBP Grant Raffle will be sold at our events for $5/each, and 100% of the proceeds raised from raffle ticket sales will deposit directly into the quarterly CTSBP Grant Program Fund. We will give the entire grant purse away to the board-selected winner within two weeks of each party, four times a year.
