Revitalizing the Heart of Christiansburg: The New Small Business Initiative Provides Grants and Support for Entrepreneurs

In recent years, the Town of Christiansburg has introduced a new initiative aimed at supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in the area. The program, which runs for 10 weeks, provides participants with the opportunity to pitch their ideas and potentially receive up to $5,000 in grants.

Amanda Hebert, the small business solutions manager for the town, emphasized the potential life-changing impact of these grants on individuals in the area. To be eligible for the program, participants must be residents of Christiansburg, have a business idea to share, and be willing to discuss it in a safe environment.

Astleigh Hill, owner of the Chandlerie in downtown Christiansburg, expressed her excitement about the program and its potential to benefit small businesses in the community. She believes that small businesses are essential to any community and that downtown is its heartbeat. Hill has been in business since May 2023 and is eager to see more support for small businesses in her hometown.
