Circular Cleveland will offer three business incubation grants this fall.
Circular Cleveland has teamed up with SCORE Cleveland, a business development non-profit organization offering mentorship for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses, to offer three business incubation grants in the fall of 2022.
Each grant is $10,000 and will be awarded to a small businesses or entrepreneur with an innovative idea that addresses material waste and pollution by adopting principles of a circular economy.
Your idea could be worth $10,000. Support in developing your idea into a plan, doing market research, formalizing the business and links to future opportunities through the Hebrew Free Loan Association are included in the grant award.
The circular economy is a model of production and consumption modeled on nature, which uses and reuses everything, endlessly. We need to design goods and processes that make the most of our natural resources, eliminate waste and pollution, create jobs and investment opportunities, and provide a healthy and vital environment for all. Circular economy practices include reducing, reusing, redesigning, sharing, leasing, repairing and redistribution of materials and items for continued or new use.
