AccelerateHERdc Grant Application
The AccelerateHERdc program was founded in 2018 to identify, incubate and accelerate sustainability oriented, lady-led, small-batch food businesses within the states of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The program has evolved from an annual competition into a grant program, in order to enhance access to capital and meaningful mentorship, with a specific focus on connecting female founders of color with investment and support. Grants in the amount of $1,500 will be awarded seasonally. In addition to the grant money, awardees will receive mentorship from Danielle Vogel, the Founder of Glen's Garden Market, as well as other key members of the Glen's Garden Market Team, as selected by the grantee based on the needs of her business. The awardee will also earn placement for her product on the shelves of Glen's Garden Market, if her product is not already sold at Glen's.

Grant applications are assessed on the conceptual strength and retail-readiness of the product, the founder's commitment to sustainability and the specificity of the applicant's plans for utilizing the grant money and maximizing the mentorship opportunities.

The AccelerateHERdc Grant Program is open to all female founders, as well as those founders who identify as female, with a specific focus on directing support toward businesses founded by women of color.
