The Downtown Long Beach Associates’ (DLBA) Woman Owned Business Accelerator Program is now accepting notices of intent to apply for a total award bucket of $15,000. Notices of intent are due Tuesday, September 5, and will be followed by a Facebook Live Information Session Q&A to be held Wednesday.
With Built By She, Wonder Women Tech, the City of Long Beach and Cal State Long Beach’s Institute for Innovation & Entrepreneurship as partners, the program is designed to help existing, as well as “pre-revenue”, woman-owned businesses in downtown Long Beach by providing not only grant funds, but also targeted assistance, in an effort to recruit, retain or expand woman-owned businesses in the area. Winning participants will receive three to five four-hour education sessions to help develop their business.
