Funding Opportunity

HerRise MicroGrant

The HerRise MicroGrant provides financial assistance to Women of Color creating entrepreneurs that are often unable to secure funding for their small business.

The HerRise MicroGrant provides financial assistance, with the help of our corporate sponsors and donors, to Women of Color creating innovative solutions that impact their community and that are often unable to secure funding for their small business.

Small business grants are useful for financing a particular small business need. Past recipients used their growth grants for computers, equipment, marketing materials, software purchase, website creation and more.

Women of Color are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs. Yet, we face the greatest obstacles when scaling our businesses.  The Yva Jourdan Foundation, the nonprofit arm of HerSuiteSpot, raises money to help Women of Color entrepreneurs gain access to the coaching, community and capital they need to take their businesses to the next level.

Who should apply?

  • Businesses 51% owned by women of color
  • Businesses currently registered in the US
