Request a Grant Writer

A program providing $50,000 in funding is open to USA, Canada and International women-led startups that focus on technology, health care, and consumer products, for startup funding and mentorship for their early-stage venture. The funding source will take an equity position in the company in exchange for $50,000 and its unique, comprehensive programming.

The $50,000 is paid in two tranches with one at the beginning and one at the successful completion of the program.

In addition to funding, participants will receive:

-Curriculum designed specifically for women to help them scale their businesses and raise follow-on capital.

-Instructors who are leaders in their fields of technology, marketing, management and others.

-No need to relocate the company. All company CEOs/founders commit to being in St. Louis for the two days a week that the program is provided over the three-month period.

-Exposure to a network of experts and possible capital sources.

-The program culminates with a demo day, which gives companies an opportunity to pitch to a full house of business leaders, venture capitalists, angel investors, and potential clients. After graduation, the goal is to work hard to make sure companies remain successful and continue to receive the support they need to grow.
