Need Capital? Women Entrepreneurs Continue to Grapple with Gender Disparity in Business Capital Accessibility

The small business sector is a major force in the American economy, responsible for two-thirds of jobs in the private sector. But despite significant progress, female business owners continue to suffer from a gender gap in factors that influence small business financing.

Often this is simply because women are less likely to identify what they need and be willing to ask for it. Yet all businesses need sufficient capital to not only survive, but to thrive.

Rather than blaming gender disparity, lower annual revenues, or credit scores on the lack of access to business capital, we encourage you to identify what you need and ask for it.

We can help in a few ways:

  1. We can take you through a process that reviews your revenue model and current resources to determine what you have and what you need;
  2. We can introduce you to funding resources and credit partners that you may not be aware of; and
  3. We can help you make a powerful ask for the funding you need.
