The KKR Small Business Builders Grant Program for Female Founders, one of a number of grant programs undertaken by the Global Entrepreneurship Network, Hello Alice and KKR, has provided 49 women-identifying entrepreneurs with $10,000 to help their small businesses grow in response to the pandemic. 

Now in Round 7, the program invests in woman-identifying entrepreneurs, with an emphasis on New Majority owners who have pivoted their business in response to the pandemic and provide important community services. 

The recipients share a commitment to serving their communities and furthering their missions, along with the tenacity it takes to navigate the path of entrepreneurship during challenging times.

Since the program launched in the early days of the pandemic, hundreds of owners have since been impacted.
