Eden wins a grant from the SF Women's Entrepreneurship Fund
This week is one that I will remember for the rest of my life. I wrote a grant, presented in front of a panel of a dozen people (nerve-wracking), and was honored to be the first one awarded through the San Francisco Women's Entrepreneurship Fund. On Monday I received the grant and was celebrated by Mayor Mark Farrell, MEDA, OEWD, Supervisor Hillary Ronen, Ani Rivera, Erin Archuleta and many friends for my mission to keep art and culture alive in San Francisco. I am still glowing from being recognized by the city for the dedication and hard work that goes on behind the scenes to run my small business. This grant is not just a win for my business, but for the more than seventy independent companies I support. This is a win for the arts and the Mission Bernal community.
Thank you for sharing this experience and supporting Secession. Stop by this weekend to say hello, 12-7pm.
PS: If you are a woman entrepreneur, I hope you'll apply for this grant too!
