IFundWomen is the go-to funding marketplace for women-owned businesses and the people who want to support them with access to capital, coaching, and connections.
We offer immediate access to capital through a premium online fundraising experience, access to small business grants from corporate partners, expert business coaching on all the topics entrepreneurs need to know about, and a network of women business owners that sparks confidence, accelerates knowledge and ignites action.
Our mission is to close the funding gap for women-owned businesses.
There is a complete lack of funding options for women entrepreneurs.
Women are starting businesses 4.8 times faster than the national average, yet we struggle to access capital without going into debt. Only 1% of all businesses, regardless of the gender of the founder, will ever raise venture capital. So, how do 99% of businesses get their startup funding? We max out our credit cards or try to take out a bank loan. At IFundWomen, we believe that nobody should go into debt funding the early days of a business.
72% of female founders cite lack of access to capital as the #1 barrier to starting a business.
49% of women cite lack of access to coaches and mentors who have “been there, done that” as a major barrier.
31% of women cite lack of access to a support system, community, and connections to help them level up as another huge barrier to launching a business.
When people can find you, they can fund you!
IFundWomen provides a platform for women-led businesses to access capital through online fundraising, access to small business grants, expert coaching, professional creative production, a collaborative entrepreneur community, and access to industry connections critical to launching and growing businesses.
The reason why IFundWomen is fundamentally different than anything on the market today is because of our proprietary funding program, The IFundwomen Method, which brings three core principles together: Capital, Coaching, and Connections.
