MEPR Agency's Innovation Fund was established in 2017 as a philanthropic effort to support existing businesses in Nashville. This micro business grant will be awarded to full-time small business owners - in business at least three years - who are seeking a resource to become a more innovative business. The grant can be used to support professional development, software solutions, or administrative tools. In some cases this will be a matching grant and will only pay a portion of the need. Four awards will be provided awarding up to $250 each; the grant cycle will occur in the Fall and Spring. Applications will be accepted between February 22 - April 5, 2018. Winners will be announced before Small Business Week (April 29 - May 5).
The business must be based in Middle Tennessee. The award will be paid directly to the need, not the business owner.
