Preparing to Get Back to Business

Learn What You Need to Reopen or Refuel Your Small Business
At Hello Alice we know you have been through a lot during this pandemic.  We are here with 360,000 of your fellow business owners to help you navigate your new normal with access to funding, e-learning guides, and mentorship.

Business for All Grants

To ensure Business for All, Hello Alice with the support of Verizon, Silicon Valley Bank, Ebay Foundation, UBS, Visible, and Stacy’s Rise Project offered $10,000 emergency grants to small business owners impacted by the pandemic. We are proud to be distributing over $1.5 million in funds to 154 awardees of the COVID-19 Business for All Emergency Grant, which has closed for applications. Owners can now submit for the general Business for All program, which offers exclusive mentorship opportunities and grants of up to $50,000 to support long-term business growth. Applications are open through September 25, and recipients will be announced later this fall.

Committed to Diversity

Business for All provides access to all owners including women, people of color, Military-Connected owners, the LGBTQ+ community, entrepreneurs with disabilities, and everyone with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Opportunities for Black-owned Businesses

Hello Alice is proud to provide the Black-owned Business Center as a critical resource where Black entrepreneurs can find everything from how to guides and funding to networking and mentorships. Now, more than ever, we’re here to make sure you have the access you need and the support you deserve.

Opportunities for Hispanic Business Owners

Providing Spanish translations of online assets is just the beginning. We’re here for Hispanic business owners with the latest state updates, PPP forgiveness guide, employee support services and more. That’s why we’re endorsed by a growing number of Hispanic community leaders. Just ask Armando “Pitbull” Perez.

Opportunities for Military-Connected Entrepreneurs

Our resource center is here to empower those entrepreneurs who identify as part of the Military-Connected community: all branches of the U.S. Military, active and reserve component members, Military spouses, and Veterans. We can connect you with funding, business opportunities, like-minded mentors plus a community of entrepreneurs just like you.
