2020 Recipients

In 2020, Start Garden pivoted The 100 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which hit entrepreneurs and small businesses especially hard. Our goal was to relieve as many entrepreneurs as possible of the burden to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table, while they navigated this unprecedented time.

In just 100 hours:

  • 430 applications were submitted
  • Funding requests totaled more than $5,500,000
  • 68 recipients were selected for the funds

Through The 100 Comeback Fund, we were able to award more than $300,000 to 68 entrepreneurs experiencing financial strain. See a list of recipients below.
