It’s easy to find sites offering grants to women-owned businesses. The issue? You’ll likely have a choice of intimidating government websites — and the time consuming paperwork that comes with them — or private sites that seem shady.
Don’t worry. For 20+ years, WomensNet has helped business owners find real grants, loans, and other funding for your woman-owned business. Yes, you still have to put in some sweat equity. But the good news is this: if you’re serious about launching or growing your business, you’ll find our site is a key resource.
A good start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Women entrepreneurs from Rhode Island (and all over America) can apply for this grant. Here’s how it works…
Our judges award one $10,000 Amber Grant every month. If you win, you automatically have a chance to be awarded our $25,000 year-end Amber Grant. Imagine what $35,000 in total grant funds would do for your business.

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.
