Percy Marchand, Idea Cafe Grant Winner featured in the London TimesHere's our winner, Percy Marchand, of Marchand Ink in New Orleans. After he won Idea Cafe's Pilot Grant, he was featured in The London Times in a color feature article (their photo, much reduced, is at left), plus he was named one of the "People to Watch" by New Orleans Magazine. Not to mention that he increased his income by 300% and moved to a new, better location twice as large. So be sure to click through the link above to read Percy's story and his insightful reports.

With this Pilot Grant, we tested through our custom backend grant process to be sure it all works smoothly, since we want to pump through as many grants as we can afford to deserving entrepreneurs.

Grant Dollars: Grant amount = $1,000 to one winner.

Timing: Winner announced July, 2006.

For What Kind of Person or Business: Anyone who currently owns a business or is planning to start one.

Qualifications: In order to access the application form, you must be a registered "Regular" member of Idea Cafe, and not previously have received a grant directly from Idea Cafe.

Where to Get More Info: Find out about the winner, finalists and semi-finalists through the links above.

Idea Cafe Seasoning: We want the winner to reach out to help someone else in some way. (You don't have to give financial help... a few big hugs would do just fine.) Let us know your idea(s) about this on the application.

Deadline: May 5, 2006
