Here is the link to the application for the loans: http://www.highercircle.com/campaigns/august_event. The application can be completed quickly online or downloaded and emailed to [email protected] by July 15th. Please forward this to whomever you think may find of interest.
We welcome candidates located in any part of the globe (including the US), but preference will be given to applicants whose SMEs are focused in developing economies (Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East/North Africa (MENA)).
We are also excited to announce the Coming to America event on August 15-16, 2013 in Silicon Valley. Entrepreneurs who are selected for funding will be invited to attend the event. Airfare, accommodations, transportation to and from the hotel, breakfast and lunch, and visa fees will be paid for by Higher Circle. There are no application or participation fees.
Here, passionate and innovative social entrepreneurs from around the world who head small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with 5-500 employees will be invited to:
• Secure initial loans between $2,000-$25,000, with the opportunity to crowdfund larger loans
• Participate in an enriching 2 day-long conference
