A Google search for women business grants will bring up a few pages of sites. But most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites — all of which want your personal and financial information.
That’s not what we’re offering you. Instead, WomensNet can help you find real grants, loans, and other funding for your business venture. 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.
The place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. This is our simple $10,000 monthly grant. And businesswomen from Louisiana (and all around America) are eligible to apply for this grant. At the end of each month, our judges select one winner. At the end of the year, our 12 monthly winners are eligible to become the year-end recipient of our biggest grant ever — $25,000. That means a few minutes now could translate into life-changing funds for your business.
After you’ve applied for our grant, please take a bit of time to check out the resources below. There are folks in Louisiana waiting to help women business owners just like you.

WomensNet launched the Amber Grant in 1998 to honor the memory of an ambitious young woman who died at the age of 19, before she could realize her entrepreneurial aspirations. Today, these grants help women like you fulfill the dreams that Amber could not.
Every month, WomensNet judges award one or more Amber Grants of $10,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those grant recipients is selected to receive the $25,000 Amber Grant.
