After our recent “Resilient Entrepreneur” Training we held a raffle drawing. That’s not a surprise to anyone familiar with our movement. We always giveaway two goodie bags after each of our CirculateMKE Markets. This giveaway was different though , by the end of our Training, we ended up giving every Creative Entrepreneur on the video training a cash prize which amped everyone up for the Grand prize even more! To win BIG participants had to join the Movement Fund. You might ask, well what is the Movement Fund????
Well, our Resilience Training was facilitated and sponsored by them! AND YOU CAN INVEST our ability to provide MORE low barrier CIRCULATEMKE Micro Grant$ and Small Business Trainings through the Movement Fund!!!
“Here’s a blurb from their site: Bringing change means bringing awareness through training sessions, campaigns, gatherings, discussions and other avenues that inform the people of the challenges, solutions and get them involved. Build Community when you Build Awareness and empower The Movement.”
Here’s what Fabi Gee, of Essential Rituals by Fabi, our Grand prize WINNER had to say:
“Participating in the recent Movement Fund training, it gave me hope to know that there are real grants for real entrepreneurs that may not be well established enough to be considered for other grants. Listening to how the Movement Fund really gets behind businesses and people of color to help them overcome obstacles that stand in the way of them and their dreams. I have always been a supporter of the Circulate Markets and then became an actual vendor. That community really does rely on us building each other and supporting each other. Looking through the lens of actually trying to start a business is more difficult than people could imagine. I am proud to be able to support Circulate Market and the Movement Fund so that other entrepreneurs can have the same opportunity that I was blessed with! I am truly honored and blessed to have been chosen to receive this Grant and being able to pay it forward.“
