Fortitude Fund announced its latest cohort earlier this month of four founders receiving $1,000 grants and mentorship connections.
New members of the fund’s entrepreneurial community from its Cohort 22 include Amanda Klingenberger of Linden Square, Cullen Bryant of Premier Signs, Stephanie Rogers of Set The Table and Ryan Srogi of Simple Sorte.
The fund is on a mission to establish a radically charged entrepreneurial culture in northeast Indiana by identifying early entrepreneurs, surrounding them with a community of kindred spirits, connecting them with mentors who can share what they have learned about starting a business, and providing funding support.
The fund started in May 2018 with a goal of awarding 50 $1,000 grants within a year to “big, bold builders and doers,” it said. It awarded more than 100 of the grants in that time frame.
