DALLAS, Texas – The National Association for the Self-Employed today announced that a Belleville small business, JFY Consulting, has been awarded a 2016 Growth Grant.
JFY Consulting is one of six winners of NASE’s first-half 2016 Growth Grants and will receive $4,000 to help grow and expand their business operations. These six small businesses are the first-half winners of the 2016 Growth Grant awards. This year, NASE will hand out $48,000 in grants to small businesses across the country.
JFY Consulting is owned by Marilyn Green, an NASE member. JFY Consulting, Inc. offers a synergistic think tank that combines the knowledge, experience and wisdom of baby boomers and the creative, tech-savvy connectivity of millennials to aid in strategic planning, business development and other business solutions.
“On behalf of the nation’s leading association for the self-employed and micro-business community, it’s our honor to announce JFY Consulting as a recipient of our first-half Growth Grant of $4,000,” said John Hearrell, vice president of membership and affiliate programs. “It is critical for us to support and recognize small business owners and sole proprietors who are exemplifying America’s entrepreneurial spirit.”
He added: “We look forward to watching Marilyn make the critical investments needed to grow and expand this locally owned business.”
Since 2006, the NASE has awarded more than half a million dollars to members through the Growth Grant program by providing small-business grants. NASE’s Growth Grant program is intended for businesses planning to take the next step in their venture. It provides available capital for small businesses and sole proprietors to be able to hire and train additional employees, market their business in new and existing ways or invest in new equipment or software.
Applications for the NASE’s 2016 Growth Grant program are currently being accepted from now through Dec. 10, 2016. Applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year and winning small businesses will be awarded $4,000 grants monthly throughout 2016. Visit the Growth Grant page for more information.
