Even though women startup businesses are eligible for our monthly Amber Grant, we wanted to create this additional grant especially for this underserved sector: We define a “startup” as a business in the “idea phase,” or one that has only had minimal sales (less than $10,000).
These grants are quarterly based on applications submitted from: December-February, March-May, June-August, and September-November.
The Amber Grant Fund has grown through the years. That growth is reflected in two ways by the winners below. First, by the increase in the dollar amounts of each grant. Second, by the increase in how many times a grant is given.
