Have you ever pursued grants for your woman-owned business? A Google search will bring up a lengthy list of sites. But most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites.
We’re quite different. For 20+ years, WomensNet has helped women like you find legitimate grants, loans, and other funding for your business venture. Yes, you’re still going to have to put in some hard work and time. But if you’re serious about getting your business to the next level, you’ll find our site is a key resource.
A simple place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Business women from Connecticut (and all across North America) are eligible to apply for this monthly $10,000 grant. If you’re a recipient, you’re automatically eligible for our $25,000 year-end Amber Grant.
That’s right — someone will be awarded a total of $35,000 in grant funds this year. Just think about how that would elevate your business.
After you’ve applied for our grant, please take some time to review the resources listed below. There are people in Connecticut eager to help women business owners just like you. Good luck in your search.
