Our Startup Travel Grants are for those that need to travel in order to take the next step in growing their business. We want to fund a trip that will help entrepreneurs and startup companies in the Greater Peoria region meet with potential investors, suppliers, and customers.
On the other hand, companies can flip the Travel Grant on its head and apply to bring someone to town for a visit. The choice is yours. We just want our startups to focus on their business development opportunities.
Greater Peoria is an Economic Development District that includes Peoria, Tazewell, Woodford, Mason, and Logan Counties in Illinois.
One startup company may apply for up to $500 in one calendar year.
