Local businesses make up the color, flavor and character of the neighborhoods we love and want to live in.

FOUND/LA supports local entrepreneurs to help them build their business, purpose, and community.

We love nothing more than seeing a smart idea come to life. That’s why we connect future and existing business owners—particularly women, immigrants, and minorities—with resources to help them succeed. That includes funding, educational tools, incubator-style workshops, unique mentorship opportunities, and most importantly, a community of other local entrepreneurs.

FOUND/LA’s Small Business Recovery Fund

COVID-19 has devastated small businesses across the nation, hitting our hometown of Los Angeles incredibly hard. Local restaurants, boutiques, neighborhood salons and coffee shops are at risk of having to close their doors permanently. These small businesses are the heart and soul of our community. We can’t stand to lose them. That’s why we’re creating a grant program to help business owners in LA County make it through this time.
