The Community Capital Club, a fund within the Community Foundation, the Economic Development Alliance of St. Clair County and The Underground Incubator, are now financially supporting area entrepreneurs with the launch of the new Proving Grounds entrepreneurial fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide seed capital to startups after their launch at the early-revenue stage. How it works is entrepreneurs will fill out a Proving Ground Application Form then if approved the start-up will receive $10,000 for 5% equity of the company to the Community Capital Club. The company will also be enrolled in the Underground’s Virtual Incubator Program. For more information about the program or application visit startunderground.com
