Are you searching for grants for women in business? Truthfully, there aren?t too many places that offer small business grants to women entrepreneurs. But we're one of the few who do.

WomensNet.net has been offering grants for women business owners since 1998. We call them "Amber Grants" named after the sister of the woman who founded the WNN site.

Our Amber Grants aren't like grants from fancy foundations or government. You don't have to go through a ton of paperwork to apply. And, of course, you never have to repay the money.

All we ask is that winners "pay it forward" someday to like-minded women who might be starting out in business.
