TurningPoint Executive Search Co-Sponsors National Pride Grant for LGBTQ+ led businesses

TurningPoint Executive Search is proud to partner with Founders First to co-sponsor the National Pride Grant, providing $1000 grants to 25 LGBTQ+ led businesses with less than $10m in revenue.  The National Pride Grant is an opportunity to bring both financial resources and access to knowledge, talent, and experience to LGBTQ+ led organizations that might not have access otherwise.

“We are very committed as a family, my wife, children, and I, to this community. For me to be able to provide some expertise and financial support to a fund like the Pride Grant is very fulfilling, and I feel very fortunate to be involved.”  ~Ken Schmitt, TurningPoint Founder & CEO

Founders First is a small business growth accelerator focused on helping diverse-led businesses create more value and create jobs by providing them with know-how, resources, coaching, and connections to capital.

“We are so excited because part of what Founders First does is try to fill the gaps and needs that our community has – one of those needs is for those of businesses owned by the LGBTQ+ community.” Shaylon Scott, Executive Director, Founders First, CDC.
