A Google search will bring up a long list of sites. But most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites that ask a lot of personal and financial questions.
We’re different. WomensNet helps 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 key resource.
A great place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Businesswomen from Michigan (and all around America) are eligible to apply. Our judges award a $4,000 Amber Grant each month – so there’s never a bad time to apply. And if you are one of our 12 winners at the end of the year, you’re automatically eligible to win our year-end Amber Grant of $25,000. That means a few minutes of your time right now could turn into $29,000 total this year.
After you’ve applied for our grant, please take a bit of time to check out the resources below. There are people in Michigan waiting to help women business owners just like you. Best of luck.
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 $4,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those grant recipients is selected to receive the $25,000 Amber Grant.
By telling us your story. There are no lengthy, complicated documents to complete; just answer a few questions about your business. But hurry—applications are due by the end of the month for the next $4,000 Amber Grant.
You’re in luck. We’ve done hours of research and compiled a list of the 16 best small business grants available for women today—and we’d love to share it with you!
