J.P. Morgan Chase and Living Social have joined forces in a $3 million on-line grant competition, known as "Mission: Small Business." $250,000 will be awarded to twelve of the country's most compelling and promising small business ventures.
The Urban League of Greater New Orleans' Women's Business Resource & Entrepreneurship Center is proud to support, our client, Bissap Breeze, LLC, one of New Orleans' most promising new enterprises in their application in the grant competition. This young company was founded by husband-and-wife team Esailama and Tyrone Henry.
Bissap Breeze is a refreshing natural beverageblend of hibiscus flowers, agave nectar, and a host of other spices and extracts producing a delicious, all-natural tea, which can be used as a refreshing drink, a tasty spritzer, or an excellent culinary enhancer. Bissap Breeze is sold in local Whole Foods stores, and in local grocery chains like Robert Fresh Market and Lakeview Grocery.
The Henrys have become New Orleans' most talked about small business success story. They have received accolades from notable corporations like Entergy and micro-business advocate Kiva; the business has been recognized and awarded by The Flex Fund, a small business support organization providing technical assistance and business capital.
