If you’ve done much searching on the internet, you know how hard it can be to find grant money for your woman-owned business. Government isn’t likely going to help you. Other sites offering grant money can seem a little shady.
But here’s where the good news begins. You’ve discovered a site than will help you find grants, loans and tons of resources for Texas women business owners like you. Yes, you’ll still have to get your hands dirty and do the heavy lifting! But if you’re willing to put in the time to pursue your business dream, we’d love to point you in the right direction.
For starters — yes, WomensNet offers business grants to women in Texas (as well as all across the United States). It’s our monthly Amber Grant for Women and it’s simple for you to apply. Every month, we give a $10,000 grant to one woman business owner. And at the end of the year, we give away a $25,000 grant to one of our 12 monthly winners. So if you’re willing to take a couple minutes to tell us about your business dreams, you could be awarded $35,000 in grant money by the end of this year!
