Chase And Google Announce $3 Million In Grants And Trip To Google For 12 Small Businesses Through The Mission Main Street™ Grants Program

Chase and Google today announced twelve small businesses chosen to each receive a $250,000 grant through Mission Main Street Grants, a program that gives small businesses across the nation the opportunity to receive a share of $3 million in grants from Chase. In addition to the Chase grants, Google will host each business for a marketing workshop at Google headquarters in California.

“Chase serves more than 4 million American small businesses, so we have a first-hand appreciation of the important role they play in communities across the country,” said Chase Business Banking CEO Scott Geller. “We hope these twelve exceptional businesses take their innovative products and creative approaches to new heights through their Mission Main Street grant.”

Nearly 35,000 small businesses from all 50 states submitted applications for consideration to receive a $250,000 grant from Chase and a trip to Google headquarters. More than 1.7 million people showed their support for those participating businesses by voting on MissionMainStreetGrants.com. Applications submitted by businesses that received at least 250 votes were eligible to continue onto the judging phase.

The following twelve small businesses were chosen by a panel of experts for their superiority in demonstrating a solid business plan, feasible growth plan, overall passion for their business, the potential to make a positive impact within their local community, and their likelihood to succeed with a two-year time frame:
