Apply for 2023 Up & Running grants

Category: News

eBay are inviting small businesses based in the US to apply for one of 50 $10,000 grants to invest in their small business, plus technology to fuel their growth. The $500,000 2023 Up & Running grants will be supplemented this year with an additional stipend worth $500 that each Up & Running Grant recipient can use to equip themselves with essential office technology and tools from eBay Refurbished

Between 2020-2023, eBay has committed more than $2 million to encourage and support U.S. small businesses in their journey to scale, grow and thrive. A survey of eBay’s Up & Running Grants awardees since 2020 revealed that 91% of recipients found the grant extremely or very helpful for their businesses. Additionally, 41% reported a definitive increase in business revenue following receipt of the grant.

For 28 years, eBay has fostered entrepreneurialism by giving people a platform to launch and grow small businesses. Supporting sellers is at the core of our marketplace, and the capital, community and business tools that make up our Up & Running Grants represent another layer of eBay’s investment and commitment to every seller’s success.

– Adam Ireland, VP & U.S. General Manager at eBay

For the fourth year, 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 ultimately receive a grant or not. 

eBay’s Up & Running Grants program has made a tremendous impact on small business owners across the U.S. over the past few years. At Hello Alice, we have a mission of helping small businesses receive access to capital and resources that help them grow, which are especially necessary within today’s challenging economic climate. We’re excited about the launch of this year’s grant program and the additional business and technology tools that will help small business owner recipients succeed.
