You should apply for this year's AOA Startup Grant. Yes, you. So don't wait.

AOA Startup Grant 2017 announce billboard

Hey, how's that AOA Startup Grant application coming along?

As we announced last week, the AOA Startup Grant is back for 2017. One project will a boost in the form of $2,500 in cash, along with the attention from winning the contest.

And applications are open until September 7! So don't wait! Here's how to apply!

Congrats to Rachael McCormick Photography for submitting the first application in this year's contest.

Entries are posted here on AOA in the order they're received, so Rachael's app will be at the top of the list. The earlier you get your entry in, the earlier it will appear on the site -- and the higher it will appear in the listing. And that could help when crowd voting for two of the spots in the final opens September 11.

So don't wait! Get that application together and submit it!

This year's AOA Startup Grant is sponsored by CDPHP, CDTA, the College of Saint Rose, Nine Pin Cider, and the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region
