Last spring, I was encouraged to apply for a Red Letter Grant, a grant given to female entrepreneurs to help them get a head start. I presented before a group of successful female entrepreneurs, bankers, and artists. I was honored to be chosen. The grant is a $2000 award, plus credit to use at Volume One and Ambient Inks. Beyond that, I have been connected to an amazing group of women who are about empowering and teaching. This has been an incredible experience.
Recently the grant has expanded, and with that expansion a retail space was donated for grant winner use. The first use of this space will be as a holiday pop-up where you can get to know the grantees and their businesses. Hive & Hollow will be there with plants, gifts and holiday flower arrangements, along with Dotters Books, Giizhig Design Company, Moonrise Aeriels, and Odd Brand Strategy.
Swing by and see us there! Wednesdays through Sundays at 325 E. Madison in Eau Claire. Learn more at www.RedLetterGrant.org
