Online crafts marketplace Etsy Inc. announced Friday that it will host a summit on small business and sustainability this fall.
Called Hello Etsy, the main event will be held in Berlin on Sept. 17 and 18. But similar events will also be held that weekend in the U.S. in Portland, Ore., Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and Brooklyn, N.Y.
The summit will include seminars and workshops on how to come up with a product idea, bring it to life, take it to market and build a sustainable business around it. Participants will also have the opportunity to apply for an investment grant from the Hello Etsy Small Business Fund. The grants will range from $500 to $5,000 and be awarded to up to five applicants. Further, grant recipients will receive support from Profounder Financial, an online crowdfunding platform, in raising more investment capital after the conference ends.
