You could spend all day looking for grant opportunities on the web. In our own search, it was frustrating how many sites look spammy. Others were highly competitive and specialized government-run sites that chew up your time with excessive paperwork.
We’re much different. For 20 years, WomensNet has helped business owners like you find real grants, loans, and other funding. Yes, you’re still going to have to put in some hard work. But if you’re serious about getting your business to the next level, you’ll find our site a big help.
A simple, straightforward place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Businesswomen from Nebraska (and all around America) are eligible to apply for this grant. Our judges name 5 finalists and award a $10,000 grant each month – and at the end of the year, 1 of the 12 recipients will earn an additional $25,000 Amber Grant. Think about what $35,000 would mean for the life of your business.
Beyond applying for our grant, consider viewing some of the resources below. There are people in Nebraska waiting to help women business owners just like you. We wish you the best in your quest for funding.
