For the fifth year in a row, Intel is teaming with the NGLCC to make attendance at the 2009 Business and Leadership Conference: Out for Business more accessible and affordable for LGBT business owners.
The NGLCC-Intel Business Development Scholarship has helped more than 120 LGBT business owners, entrepreneurs and LGBT chamber leaders attend past conferences by covering part or all of the cost of conference registration, depending on need.
The program was developed to ensure business owners-many of whom may not be able to afford the conference-have the financial resources to attend Out for Business in order to develop valuable connections and relationships for their businesses.
"Our chief goal is to create opportunities for LGBT entrepreneurs so they can acquire the tools they need to succeed, especially in these trying economic times," said NGLCC co-founder and president Justin Nelson. "The NGLCC-Intel Business Development Scholarship does just that."
Those business owners interested in applying for the scholarship should contact the NGLCC Supplier Diversity Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or download the application here www.nglcc.org/seattle2009/scholarship .
