Bullying, both at school and online, has affected tens of thousand of children nationwide. It's time we provide these students a platform to speak up and receive help without fear of retaliation.
Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Sagient Technologies, Inc. has applied for a $250,000 grant from Chase as part of a newly launched program, Mission Main StreetSM Grants. Sagient must submit a questionnaire outlining a business plan that will result in growth of the business and receive at least 250 votes to be eligible for a grant. Full eligibility requirements are available in the Program Rules https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/rules.
Customers, fans and community members can show support for Sagient Technologies by voting at https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/7410 using Facebook Connect. The voting deadline is November 15, 2013 and grant recipients will be selected by expert panelists.
"Receiving this grant would allow Sagient to continue providing schools the technology necessary to ensure student safety, both online and off. Nothing is more disturbing than a child unwilling to seek help for themselves or others due to a fear of retaliation. Providing a truly anonymous platform from which our kids can report harmful or potentially harmful acts leads to a greater chance of reporting and therefore a larger opportunity to help those in need,” states Paul Radke, Founder of Sagient Technologies.
Through Mission Main Street Grants, Chase will award $3 million to small business across America. All businesses that apply for a grant and meet the eligibility requirements will receive a special advertising offer from Premier Sponsor, Google. In addition, the 12 grant recipients will be eligible to receive a trip to Google for an exclusive small business marketing workshop with Google experts and a Google Chromebook Pixel laptop.
The 12 grant recipients will be announced in January 2014.
