WHY THIS GRANT AND WHY NOW

Women business owners are the foundation of communities everywhere. We are leading demographic starting new businesses in record numbers as a main contributor to a strong economy employing members of our communities, investing in our communities and upholding our communities. Now, more than ever, we need the help and support of the communities we serve. We need you!!!

 
Many women entrepreneurs and business owners in the United States and around the world have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic; forcing many of us to close our doors, layoff staff, and scramble to figure out how to manage the operational costs with lost revenues and to survive and rise up from the storm.
 
As a business owner, woman and advocate for women living their dreams and building legacies, I was compelled to take action to do something to help my sisters who are devastated and suffering. In 2020, I founded the She Boss Up Grant Program, created a grassroots campaign, hosted a fundraiser and with contributions from my peers and my own funds, we opened round one of grant applications.

 

We are resilient and persevere through the toughest challenges. Now, we have grown the fund and goals of the program to provide equity free funding to further develop and scale women’s businesses. Women are the fastest growing demographic of business startups. Yet, we remain UNDERFUNDED!!! Equal access to capital is necessary for women to start and grow businesses that are needed in the marketplace to solve the world’s problems.

 
Together, we can achieve so much! Let’s work collectively to fund women.
