More than 11.9 million firms in the U.S. alone are owned by women. (National Association of Women Business Owners)
Yet in 2021, only 2.0% of VC funds went to women-owned businesses. (Forbes)
We’re doing a small part to be the change. Thanks to generous sponsors, we’re proud to support promising mom entrepreneurs. These grants are not venture capital, and never need to be paid back. We see it as a boost to help you grow!
AM I ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?
The Mama Ladder helps ambitious mom entrepreneurs grow their business. This is an international grant program. Mothers who own businesses, from any country, are welcome to apply!
For fall 2023, there are four simple requirements:

- You can verify earning business revenue in the past 12 months.
