Heartwork wins its first Grant

St. Louis supports entrepreneurship. There are so many opportunities to find resources and get plugged into the ecosystem. The city is full of entrepreneurs, foundations, and connectors ready to invest in the surge of energy and ideas here. 

The BALSA Group and it's philanthropic arm, The BALSA Foundation were featured on the local podcast, Entrepreneurially Thinking in 2017. It was here that I learned about the work of The Group and how they started The Foundation with proceeds collected from it's consultation work. 

Twice a year, The Foundation accepts applications from first time entrepreneurs who would benefit from a $1,000 grant for their start-up. Heartwork Videos was named a finalist and was one of 10 awarded grants in the summer of 2017. 

I am so grateful for opportunities like the BALSA Grant and for organizations like The BALSA Group who truly walk the talk--providing economic opportunities for entrepreneurs to be successful.  --RSL
