Entrepreneurial Dream Project Launches To Give Startups An Edge
Supermaker, a new school business media company that provides content and a community for startups and creators, has announced the launch of The Entrepreneurial Dream Project, which will benefit entrepreneurs who are building new businesses during COVID-19 that need help.
Jaime Schmidt, the founder of the brand Schmidt’s Naturals, and her business partner and husband Chris Cantino, created the project.
Anyone building a new business is eligible, according to Schmidt and Cantino. Two applicants will also split a $100,000 non-dilutive grant fund, and ten applicants will receive an opportunity to be mentored by some of the world’s best-known startup leaders such as Mark Cuban, Rebecca Minkoff, Annie’s Homegrown John Foraker, Jaclyn Johnson, and Warby Parker’s Jeff Raider.
The program is being launched with support from Unilever, Adidas, Harry’s, Creative & Cultivate, Colgate, Once Upon A Farm, Green Park Brands, Red Wolf Entertainment, and many more.
With small businesses under threat and ambitions waning in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and a mounting downturn, the Entrepreneurial Dream Project provides opportunities for those who are creating and building in the face of adversity.
Eligible applicants will be evaluated according to a number of criteria, from business planning to social responsibility.

Submissions are open from now until May 31, 2020.
