The Alibaba.com Manifest Grants Program was created in collaboration with Hello Alice, a free tool that assists over one million small businesses with the launch and growth of their operations. 50 small enterprises each received a US $10,000 grant in 2021 after being chosen from a pool of more than 12,000 applicants. Nearly 80% of the recipients of this funding were people of color, and 78% of the winning companies were founded by women.
Alibaba.com and Hello Alice will once more collaborate this year to host and oversee the application process. In a continuing attempt to alleviate the challenges small firms encounter while scaling and obtaining capital for their operations, Alibaba.com has also chosen to increase this years grant pool by 50%. 50 small firms in the United States will each receive $10,000 in cash and $5,000 in logistics assistance when they place orders on Alibaba.com.
