Shoobx’s Underrepresented Founders Grants program supports those of the LGBTQ+ all year long and was born out of their mission to make equity management more equitable – involving grants that cover subscription fees for the company’s software platform and providing access to other resources.

Shoobx invites companies to apply for their program if founding members identify as underrepresented in the startup community – whether because of gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, or other factors.

There are a lot of parallels to the startup ecosystem and founders, attorneys, and investors face daily on how they should act, and what they should know. Shoobx’s Underrepresented Founders Grants Program can provide resources to founders to demystify how to get started – and educate them on what to expect, making for an inclusive and welcoming environment for all, regardless of how they identify themselves.
