You can find a lot of “women business grant sites” with just a quick Google search. The problem is this: Most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites. They want too much of your personal and financial information. Not to mention the hours of filling out forms.
We’re different. WomensNet can help you find real grants, loans, and other funding for your business venture. Yes, you’re still going to have to put in some hard work and time. But if you’re serious about getting your business to the next level, you’ll find our site a big help.
You can start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Businesswomen from Iowa (and all around America) are eligible to apply for this grant. Each month, we select one $10,000 winner to help. Our judges award this grant every month – so today would be the perfect time to apply. Even better, our 12 monthly winners compete for a chance to win the $25,000 year-end Amber Grant.
After you’ve applied for our grant, please take a bit of time to check out the resources below. There are folks in Iowa waiting to help women business owners just like you!
