Incfile Announces Fall Entrepreneur Grant Program Winners

Incfile, a leader in online business formation and startup services, today announced the winners of its Fall Entrepreneur Grant & Scholarship Program. Incfile has two grants, the Young Entrepreneur Scholarship Grant and the Fresh Start Business Grant; both aim to help foster entrepreneurial spirit, providing one-on-one business consultation and funding to help turn big ideas into reality. To apply for the next round of Incfile's Entrepreneur Grant Program, please submit your application at by 11:59 p.m. PST on December 31, 2022.

"Entrepreneurship starts with a big idea and passion to bring that idea to life," said Dustin Ray, Chief Growth Officer & Co-CEO, Incfile. "Patricia and Laura have worked hard to get their businesses off the ground and we hope that these grants, together with Incfile's startup services and community, will help provide some additional support to meet their entrepreneurial goals."

Patricia Garcia, Unithrifts

The Young Entrepreneur grant winner is awarded to Patricia Garcia, founder of Unithrifts, an app that provides access to sustainable and affordable collegiate gear. Unithrifts was founded under the belief that school spirit is directly tied to students' value in school culture, academic performance, extracurricular attendance, unity, and belonging.

Laura Byrnes, Runners' Wings

Laura founded Runners' Wings, a specialty running and fitness store, after her younger daughter, Molly, suffered an accident while running D1 track in college that left her with a disability. Runners' Wings stocks shoes, insoles, apparel, and other accessories that are accessible to everyone - from seasoned athletes to first-timers and walkers and even those with movement limitations. They offer a personalized fitting service to match customers with the proper footwear and insoles.
