STL family and friends fund

Many entrepreneurs get their start by borrowing money from those around them. This kind of “friends and family” support works well for some, but at, we know that plan doesn’t work for everyone. So, if your hustle needs more of a kickstart than your current circle can offer, we’re here to help broaden your friends and family network by connecting you with our community of donors who are looking to support young entrepreneurs like you!’s “Friends and Family Fund” provides startup grants up to $2,500 to selected young entrepreneurs in our community. The total granted amount is dependent how much you request. These grants must be used for business expenses, and we will require updates on how the grant helped your business. But, unlike a loan, you do not have to pay it back. The best part is that funding rounds happen every month so entrepreneurs have plenty of chances to compete for a grant.
