On May 27, 2021 San Bruno business owners gathered in a virtual space, to talk about how the Bay Area Entrepreneur Center of Skyline College has impacted their business during these challenging and changing times. They shared how the Micro Grants, a Small Business Recovery & Assistance Program (SBRAP) initiative, has supported their recovery and rebound from the restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year Micro Grants provided 16 struggling businesses with coaching, resources and over $4,000 each in funding, to keep them afloat. One of the most impactful outcomes of these micro grants has been the new relationships created among the community of San Bruno businesses. Because of this program, and the support it continues to receive, local business owners are in a stronger position to weather the challenges. The Micro Grants initiative is in its second round of programming, applications are due Monday, May 31st, click here to apply or share: http://bit.ly/SBRAPgrant7.
