Audible giving $250,000 grants to help bring startups to Newark

In an amazing act of corporate giving that already has spurred business development in Newark — one that further demonstrates Audible’s commitment to its headquarters city — Audible announced Tuesday morning the details of a business attraction program that is providing grants of up to $250,000 each to companies that relocate to Newark in the area around Harriet Tubman Square.

Audible officials made it clear that the money is a grant — not a loan or even an investment — and that the money can be used for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to subsidizing a lease or a buildout of that space.

In addition, Audible announced it will provide other incentives, including a $500 monthly stipend for employees of those companies that move to Newark (or already live in Newark) in another effort to bring dollars to businesses.
