This is the third round of the EDGE grant program since its start in 2019. Already, over $2 million has been awarded to a collective 35 small businesses that are either housed in Delaware or do a majority of their business in this state. 

“We need to make it easy for businesses to start and stay here in Delaware,” said Governor Carney. “That’s why we created the EDGE Grant program to encourage even more small businesses to expand and innovate. The grant recipients in this round span a wide range of industries, but each owner has the drive and determination necessary to start, then grow their business. After an incredibly challenging year, we remain committed to rebuilding our economy and supporting Delaware small businesses.”

In order to be considered, businesses must be less than 5 years old and employ no more than 10 employees. They can be accepted to compete for either the entrepreneur class (eligible for up to $25,000) or the STEM class (eligible for up to $100,000). 

The 6 businesses from Wilmington included:
