eBay has announced the launch of its third annual Up & Running Grants program created to encourage and support U.S. small businesses with the resources they need to scale, grow and thrive online. 

eBay’s 2022 Up & Running Grants is now open for nominations and will award $10,000 grants each to 50 small business sellers in the U.S. Recipients receive access to guided online learning content through the new eBay Academy, and direct training and coaching from expert sellers and small business growth advocates. 

Small businesses are the backbone of eBay — bringing their rich and diverse inventory to create the world’s most vibrant marketplace, The strength of our economy depends on small business owners, and our Up & Running Grants program is part of eBay’s ongoing commitment to empowering them. We continue to find new ways to invest in small businesses and make eBay their platform of choice, offering community, counsel, a support system and funding.

– Andrea Stairs, VP of eBay’s Seller Community

For the third year in a row, eBay is partnering with Hello Alice, a free, multichannel platform that helps businesses launch and grow, to administer the grants program and provide access to mentorship and resources to all sellers who apply, whether they are ultimately chosen for a grant or not.

Apply for an Up & Running Grant

Now through Friday, June 10, 2022, eBay small business sellers are encouraged to apply for Up & Running Grants via an online application. Business sellers will be asked to share details of their small business and how they plan to use the grant to accelerate their growth. eBay is looking to identify sellers who represent a diverse range of backgrounds, bring their unique experiences and inventory to the marketplace, and are committed to their communities and the eBay ecosystem. To apply or learn more about eligibility requirements, sellers can visit ebay.helloalice.com.
