Trust is the key to any relationship. Since 1998, WomensNet has earned trust by providing information on where to obtain grants, loans and other funding. We also pride ourselves on being one of the very few hassle-free ways to obtain a small business grant on the web.
That’s right — our simple, straightforward application page won’t take a full day to complete. And we won’t deny you if you’re not in a certain industry. As long as you have a woman-owned business, are 18+ years of age and reside in Canada or the USA … you’re eligible for our grants.
How do they work? Each month, we award one Amber Grant of $2,000. If you’re a monthly winner, you’re automatically eligible for our $25,000 year-end Amber Grant. In 2018, we awarded the most total grant money in our 20-year history.
Past winners include Krista Woods (GloveStix), who appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank shortly after earning a year-end Amber Grant. Maia Josebachvili (Urban Escapes) had her company acquired by LivingSocial after being awarded a grant.
