Chip Robinson Memorial Grant

Helping Local Entrepreneurs Succeed Online

Honoring the memory of Chip Robinson, this grant rewards eligible entrepreneurs in the Phoenix area with funding, education, and resources to develop a robust digital presence and website.

Today, every business owner should have a website. Websites help entrepreneurs attract new customers, receive payment, and schedule appointments. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs have never learned the technical skills or lack the resources to build their own websites. This gap makes it difficult for many talented entrepreneurs to scale their businesses. We’ve created this grant to address this problem.

Recipients of this program will earn a $500 grant, which can be applied to the cost of the development or hosting of their websites. With a little bit of education, we believe most entrepreneurs can learn how to build their own sites using drag and drop website editors, such as Wix and Squarespace. The $500 grant should provide entrepreneurs with roughly two years of covered web hosting costs. Our hope is that this two year runway will help to propel their businesses to new heights.

“Before I started working with Joel on my new website, I already had a website, but I was not well versed in web design. My website was not super user-friendly and didn’t drive clients to book events as easily as it does now. The website was very much all over the place and needed a lot more structure and direction.”

“With my new website, I am able to drive more clients and get more business. People see my website and are very impressed by it and are more enticed to work with me. It demonstrates my professionalism and displays the work that I have done over the years.”

“It would have been very difficult to create this website myself. I would have wasted a lot of time trying to figure things out on my own. This grant is a great opportunity for anyone who either doesn’t have a website yet or is looking to enhance their current online presence. Joel can help you take your business to the next level with the creation of your new website.”

“Hustle PHX gave me the education and resources I needed to launch my website. I manage all of the scheduling for my business right from my site. Before I had a website I was managing all of my scheduling manually via phone and text. It was a lot of work, and it made it hard to scale my business. Now, people find me on google all the time and schedule a time with me right on my site. This program has helped me grow my business a lot!”
