If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Melinda Gates
It's more than a helping hand. It's three hundred.
Gideon 300 is an NLI sponsored business incubator program for aspiring and emerging kingdom-minded businesswomen and solopreneurs. The project stands as a collective of Christian women in business who understand the financial challenges associated with starting and operating a thriving business and who desire to partner with women with a vision to create an additional stream of income by leveraging their skills and making an impact.
We exist to upskill, seed and source kingdom-minded minority women who have the vision to turn their passions into profit.
HOW IT WORKS
NLI has aligned with stellar partners looking to advance minority women-owned businesses for Kingdom impact. These partners, known as The Gideon 300, contribute anywhere from $100 per month to upwards of $1000 per quarter and lend their expertise in the training and development of awardees.
With their help, we are able to fulfill our mission to provide two women each quarter with start-up/seed capital and over $1500 in resources and training to ensure these women have the skills and knowledge to help jumpstart their vision.
Applicants are invited to apply each quarter as long as they have not previously received an award from the program and meet application requirements.
Summer Deadline Extended to June 25
Do you remember when you first started your business?
Do you recall having a dream, the drive and dedication but no dollars or donors willing to support what you envisioned? Hi. I"m Rashida. I remember all too well, and let me tell you, it was tough! I was excited AND ready but needed some help!
There are so many women who are right where we were. They see it but they can’t reach it. Maybe they need an LLC, a website, legal counsel, or just some business cards and collateral. Whatever needed, it costs money. Many only need a jumpstart with basic business capital to get moving. Too often as solopreneurs, we are unable to get started foundationally sound because we just don’t have a small stash! Gideon 300 is the end to this age-old problem, offering a crowdfunding approach to help minority female entrepreneurs secure the seed capital they need to get their businesses going.
