Winning my first small business grant completely changed the dynamic of my business! I was able to invest in my website development, marketing materials, and some business equipment. I was able to triple my clientele in the last three years.

The Women on the Rise Grant helped Broadhollow Psychotherapy launch our Yoga for Emotional Health program. This awesome gift allowed us to expand our services and help women heal in new and innovative ways.
The Women On The Rise grant was my first small business grant, which was impactful in helping me acquire software that was necessary to grow my service business. The competition allowed me to gain a high-impact awareness of my service idea, and taught me how to hone my message.

Women on the Rise saw us, a small non-profit in Mississippi fighting to overcome the resource gap, and they invested. Because of the Women on the Rise Grant, we were able to produce a marketing video for our website and social platforms. As a result more people are aware of the work we’re doing in Southwest Mississippi.

A small business like the Parenting Cove often plants seeds of hope and faith believing that the seeds will take root and than bloom. But this process is often long, lonely for the owner, and challenging amid small budgets. Women on the Rise providing grants allow small businesses like the Parenting Cove to remain mission focused and worry a little least about funding.
