The Scholarship Fund
As the world moves forward from the economic downturn of 2020,
we know that business owners need a little help.
The economic fall-out of the pandemic will continue to squeeze small businesses.
On the flip side, there will be a plethora of opportunities for the
business owners who are prepared to take advantage of them
and just like 2020 was a year of huge growth for some businesses, 2021 will be similar!
We are intent on poising as many businesses as possible to take advantage of 2021 and create their greatest impact!
In order to provide opportunities to small business owners who could use a helping hand after the impact of 2020, we've created a scholarship fund to allow businesses who could really use access to the exclusive content shared at the Grow Retreat 2021 but are not in a position to purchase a seat for themselves!
Scholarship fund recipients will receive a full-ride scholarship to the Live Stream of the 2021 Grow Retreat!
Scholarship applications will close on January 4th, 2021.
Scholarships will be awarded on January 6th, 2021.
In order to ensure these scholarships are awarded to those who will make the most out of the opportunity & participate, a $200 deposit is required from all scholarship recipients to redeem scholarship. Individual's who attend live & submit their notes within 5 days of the event will receive a full refund of the deposit.

Frequently Asked Questions
You've never provided scholarship to the Grow Retreat in the past - why now?
Because in 2020, the divide between the business owners doing well, and those severely struggling, has only widened! There are so many incredible small business owners out there who just need a little support to be positioned to take advantage of the opportunities that are opening up in 2022. We want to be that helping hand!!
How does this work?
Other small & large businesses who have had a better year than most are donating into the scholarship fund and receiving promotion in return to the Grow Disrupt network.
Grow Disrupt is matching each donation to double it's impact.
Applicants are applying using the form here, and will be required to place a $200 deposit to redeem the scholarship if awarded. The deposit will be refunded instantly upon proof of attendance.
If you are interested in donating into the fund to give back and support other small business owners, please fill out the form here
How is this different than an old, boring zoom meeting?
Great question! Check out the page we have dedicated to the Live Stream to check out what we're doing that's different than most!
Isn't the point of the retreat, that it's expensive?
Yes! We want our attendees to be engaged & value the information they receive so they will apply it in their businesses & transform their year! This is part of why we are requiring individuals to apply for the opportunity to receive the scholarship and we ask quite a few questions to ensure we are awarding scholarships to the individuals who will make the greatest impact with them!

We have prepared this Privacy Notice to explain how, why, and when we collect data from you to provide targeted advertising services for our clients, and your rights in respect of this data. If you have additional questions please feel free to use the Contact Form at the bottom of this page.
Visitors to this site may have a cookie placed in their browser by a third party provider (such as AdRoll) for targeted advertising purposes.
We may collect some or all of the following information: IP Addresses, cookie identifiers, pixels, end-user website activity.
This information is used exclusively by the algorithm of our provider & not available to us individually.
Please note that this Privacy Notice does not apply to data we collect when you visit other Grow Disrupt sites including but not limited to www.GrowDisrupt.com or www.TheStephanieScheller.com
We do not share, distribute or sell your information.
We may collect the following information for the following purposes:
Activity on Advertisers’ Digital Properties: This is data about your browsing activity on the Advertiser's website or application. For example, which pages you visited and when, what items were clicked on a page, how much time was spent on a page, whether you downloaded a white paper on a business to business (“B2B”) website, what items you placed into your online shopping cart, what products were purchased and the price of the products purchased.
Device and browser information: This is technical information about the device or browser you use to access the Advertiser's Digital Property. For example, your device's IP address, cookie string data, operating system, and (in the case of mobile devices) your device type, and mobile device's identifier (such as the Apple IDFA or Android Advertising ID, and any other unique identifier that may be assigned to the mobile device).
Ad data: This is data about the online ads we have served (or attempted to serve) to you. For example, how many times an ad has been served to you, what page the ad appeared on, and whether you clicked on or otherwise interacted with the ad. This data includes information about how well our clients’ ads and campaigns have performed, whether on our platform or on other platforms.
Data from Advertising Partners: This is data that we lawfully receive from other digital advertising companies that we work with (“Advertising Partners”) to help us deliver ads to you and recognize you across browsers and devices. This may include pseudonymous advertiser identifiers (meaning identifiers that help identify your browser or device, but do not directly identify you as a person) which some Advertisers or other third party Advertising Platforms choose to share with us – for example, your "Customer ID" with an Advertiser, a pseudonymous identifier (such as a cookie) associated with a hashed version of your email address, or demographic data such as age range. We may work with our Advertisers and Advertising Partners to synchronize their unique, pseudonymous identifiers to our own to enable us to more accurately recognise a particular unique browser or device and the advertising interests associated with it.
Shopping Information. Some Advertisers provide us with information about their customers’ shopping habits, including transactional information, product codes, and check-out activity (along with browsing information that we collect). This information may come from their websites or other transactional information they (or their service providers) maintain. We generally use this information to help us better target, personalize, and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
Information We Receive in Our Corporate Capacity. We also collect information from our own customers and those who visit our website(s). To learn more about how we collect and use that information, please see our Website Privacy Notice.
How We Use the Data We Collect
We use this data to help our Advertisers identify and serve ads to you that are more relevant to you. We also use this data to operate, improve and enhance our services including enhancing the data points we or our Advertising Partners have about a particular user, browser, or device to serve the most relevant ads to you and, in turn, improve performance of an Advertiser’s ad campaigns. Specifically, we use this data for:
Targeting: Selecting ads that are more likely to be relevant to you based on the interests previously associated with your device and the time of day you may be most interested in viewing these specific ads. For example, we may show you ads for your favorite shopping site (or similar sites we think you may like) during lunch or commute hours.
Frequency capping: Making sure that you don't see the same ad too many times.
Sequencing: If you are being served a sequence of ads, making sure we show you the right ad next in the sequence.
Cross-device matching: Identifying different devices that are likely to be associated with you so that ads can be targeted, capped and sequenced across those devices, and so that campaign effectiveness can be measured and analyzed. For example, cross-device matching helps us NOT show you ads for the shoes you were looking at on your phone but already purchased on your tablet. Instead we’ll try to show you ads for an upcoming triathlon where you can put those shoes to work. It also helps us match devices so we can honor your opt-out choices across all devices we know are connected to the opted-out cookie. You may opt-out of being targeted in the above “cross-device” and “cross-channel” ways by employing the respective opt-out techniques we describe in the “Your Choices and Opting-Out of Targeted Ads” section below.
Attribution: Monitoring when, where, and at what price we served certain ads on behalf of an Advertiser so that we can measure our influence on the marketing results of the Advertiser’s campaigns and overall marketing strategy. For example, being able to measure if a certain ad campaign (the ads shown and to whom they were shown) actually sold more soccer balls for ACME Soccer Ball Co.
Reporting: Providing Advertisers insights into how their ads are performing and gain insights into their customers. Reporting may include ad metrics such as impressions, clicks, and conversions (however the Advertiser may define a “conversion” such as, for example, a sale or a white paper download, or a correlation to an actual or inferred sale, site visit or store visit). This data allows an Advertiser to determine if an ad is not performing well (customers are not clicking on it), so that the Advertiser will be able to see that data and update the ad (perhaps with a better deal!). With respect to specific cookie data, we limit reporting to cookie activity on the specific Advertiser’s website and which ads were shown, whether there was engagement with those ads.
Conducting Our Corporate Operations. As to information we collect in our corporate capacity – our own B2B lists of customers and prospective customers – we use that information to conduct our business operations and communications.
To Opt Out:
On ads served by AdRoll for our advertisers, look for an AdChoices logo (the blue triangle) in the corner of the ad. Click the logo to learn more about interest-based advertising, who served the ad, and manage your ad options. You can also opt out of seeing personalized ads from AdRoll (and other companies) using the NAI opt out tool here. Please note you will still see ads even if you opt out, but they will not be personalized by AdRoll. For more information please see our privacy notice here.
