A Google search will bring up a long list of sites. But most either look spammy or are complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites who are looking for tech related businesses.
We’re different. WomensNet helps you find legitimate 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.
A good place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Business women from New Jersey (and all around America) are eligible to apply for this grant. Our judges award this $10,000 grant every month – so today would be the perfect time to apply. And if you’re one of our 12 monthly recipients, you’re entered into the competition for our year-end $25,000 grant. Just a couple minutes of your time could translate into $35,000 in grant money by the end of this year.
After you’ve applied for our grant, please take a bit of time to check out the resources below. There are folks in New Jersey 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.
