Edg3 Fund Competition for Entrepreneurs in Western Washington

Every year, Kitsap Bank in Western Washington holds a grant fund competition for local entrepreneurs. The winner receives $20,000. The mission of Edg3 Fund is to recognize entrepreneurs dedicated to growing their community in three ways: economically, socially and environmentally.

As a financial organization, Kitsap Bank understands that one of the biggest barriers for entrepreneurs is lack of funding. They started the grant competition to not only help local entrepreneurs but also to benefit the community economically, socially and environmentally.

  • Be a for-profit business based in Western Washington
  • Be a Western Washington resident 18 years of age or older
  • Agree to use the prize money to make a meaningful difference to their business

Application period

The Application period is open every July with applications being due by the end of July. Applicants can apply online.
