San Francisco, CA, Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hatch Credit, Inc. (“Hatch”) is proud to announce its partnership with the SF LGBT Center’s New Entrepreneur Training Program; a business development program for LGBTQ+ business owners. Hatch will be providing a $5,000 grant for one select graduate of the program, which is set to begin September 15, 2021.

The New Entrepreneur Training Program is a free, eight-week intensive training program with five budding entrepreneurs per cohort. Program leader and small business consultant Eddie Tang states, “With this program, our goal is to support individuals in the LGBT community in San Francisco to become financially independent and self-sufficient and even to create jobs for the community.”

Each week, participants attend a three-hour lecture and discussion session, and complete weekly assignments outside of class. Throughout the eight weeks, entrepreneurs will learn all aspects of business management, including strategic business planning, management, and finance. At the end of the program, participants will present their business plans to a panel of judges, including a Hatch team member. Based on select criteria, one program graduate will be chosen to receive a $5,000 grant from Hatch for their small business.
