An internet search will produce several sites promising to help woman-owned businesses. Unfortunately, most of the sites aren’t trustworthy. And others look like complicated government sites that don’t understand the time constraints of small business owners.
We’re here to help you wade through the waters. WomensNet helps you find legitimate grants, loans, and other funding sources for your business. Of course, that doesn’t mean you won’t have to put in some time and effort — because you most certainly will. But we’ll help you cut through a lot of initial time and research that would otherwise be a drain on your energy.
A simple place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Businesswomen from Houston (and all across the United States) have won in our 20-year history. And our judges award this grant every month – so any time is a good time to fill out an application. Best yet … if you win a $1,000 Amber Grant, you’re automatically eligible to win the year-end Amber Grant ($10,000). Think about what $11,000 in grant funds would do for your business.
After you’ve applied for our Amber Grant, browse the other links below. Houston has plenty of people and business resources waiting to help women business owners like you. Good luck in your search.
WomensNet launched the Amber Grant in 1998 to honor the memory of an ambitious young woman who died at the age of 19, before she could realize her entrepreneurial aspirations. Today, these grants help women like you fulfill the dreams that Amber could not.
Every month, WomensNet judges award one or more Amber Grants of $1,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those grant recipients is selected to receive the $10,000 Amber Grant.
By telling us your story. There are no lengthy, complicated documents to complete; just answer a few questions about your business. But hurry—applications are due by the end of the month for the next $1,000 Amber Grant.
You’re in luck. We’ve done hours of research and compiled a list of the 20 best small business grants available for women today—and we’d love to share it with you!
