It’s not hard to find web sites offering grants to women-owned businesses. You’ll likely have a choice of daunting government websites (like the Small Business Administration), or numerous other sites that seem a bit shady.
Don’t worry: WomensNet can help you find real grants, loans, and other funding for your woman-owned business. Yes, you still have to put in some sweat equity. But the good news is this: if you’re serious about launching your business, you’ll find our site is a key resource.
A good place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Women entrepreneurs from all five boroughs (and all around America) can apply for this grant. Our judges award one $1,000 Amber Grant each month. If you win, you automatically have a chance to be awarded our $10,000 year-end Amber Grant. So, a few minutes of your time filling out an application can turn into $11,000 by the end of this year.

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.
