Are you a female entrepreneur or a woman who runs a small business? According to The Women’s Economic Opportunities Index: Rankings by region, the country of Sweeden ranked highest (in specific attributes of the environment) for women employees and entrepreneurs in 113 economies.
MWBEzone.com and GrantWatch.com are proud to be playing an active role in women empowerment.
Another key factor identified on the study is that:
Many women face greater barriers than men in setting up businesses. Women’s enterprises are often particularly small and concentrated in the retail or services sectors. This calls for training programs in management to provide the skills needed to run a successful business.
We list grants dedicated to securing a future of opportunity and success for women in small business. Our grants for women also support the female leaders who are paying it forward by making a positive impact with other women or girls in their communities. Grants for women also fund education and training programs that provide girls with the knowledge, social skills and confidence necessary to grow as empowered business leaders.
MWBEzone.com has new grants for women posted each week. You can also discover grants for women on GrantWatch.com, each supporting a variety of initiatives for women empowerment. Don’t miss out on available opportunities that have the power to help you achieve your goals, grow your business or advance positive influences on girls and young women in your community.
Consider launching a crowdfunding campaign if you have a specific mission that will benefit women in business, unite women for a positive cause or fund a dream start-up company that caters to future female leaders. Inform your friends, family, online networks and website visitors of your goal to gain support and exposure. As those closest to you show their support, the confidence will permeate throughout your extended network and their connections. Crowdfunding is a space that women are experiencing particularly great success in.
We are seeing massive growth of crowdfunding venues, including women-focused ones. According to CircleUp, a private equity platform for consumer businesses, female founders are nine times more successful in crowdfunding than in raising capital with traditional banks, and five times more successful than with Venture Capitolists. -Inc.com
