Your dreams have a place here

We started the Venmo Small Business Grant to help small business owners make big things happen—especially those who may face additional barriers to economic growth.

To help level the playing field, we’re giving 10 businesses the money and mentorship they need to reach the next level of success. Special consideration will be given to business owners from historically underrepresented communities.

Who can apply


The Venmo Small Business Grant is open to businesses with less than $50k in annual revenue and 10 or fewer employees.

To apply, you’ll need a Venmo business profile, complete with a business description, profile photo, and background photo.

In partnership with Hello Alice

Take your free Hello Alice Business Health Score™. Increase your speed to succeed by following your personalized improvement program.
