Doing a Google search will find you a long list of shady sites, or tons of (SBA) government sites. Not much help for you there.
Now here’s the good news: You’ve landed on a site than can help you find funding for your woman-owned business. Yes, it’s going to take an investment of your time and effort to get funding – but if you’re serious about your business plans, we’d love to get you started.
We want to begin by letting you know that WomensNet offers grants to women in Ohio (as well as all across the United States). Our Amber Grant for Women has funded hardworking women business owners since 1998 — and you can apply today.
We’d also encourage you to check out the specific resources below. There are plenty of free resources in Ohio for women 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, the WomensNet judges award one or more Qualifying Grants of $1,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those Qualifying Grant recipients is selected to receive the $10,000 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 $1,000 Qualifying Grant.
You’re in luck. We’ve done hours of research and compiled a list of the 20 best small business grants available for women today—and we’d love to share it with you!
