Dream Fund Small Business Training for businesses located
in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties
The California Dream Fund Grant Program is a one-time $35 million grant program launched by the State of California to provide small business training and micro-grants up to $10,000 to seed qualifying small business creation throughout California. California entrepreneurs who are planning to start a business can register to attend an intensive startup training program developed by one of the participating training partners, such as the LA SBDC. Upon completion of the training, which includes online workshops and one-on-one advising, participants who take steps to formalize their business will be eligible to apply for a grant.
The LA SBDC’s Dream Fund training program is open to new businesses from Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. Those businesses outside of these counties can find a designated training partner in their area by clicking here.
