IFundWomen is a startup funding platform providing access to capital through crowdfunding and grants, expert business coaching on all the topics entrepreneurs need to know about, and a network of women business owners that sparks confidence, accelerates knowledge, and ignites action.
WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to equip women with the confidence, knowledge, and funding they need to bring their visions to life.
There is a complete lack of funding options for women entrepreneurs.
Women are starting businesses 4.8 times faster than the national average, yet we struggle to access capital without going into debt. Only 1% of all businesses, regardless of the gender of the founder, will ever raise venture capital. So, how do 99% of businesses get their startup funding? We max out our credit cards or try to take out a bank loan. At IFundWomen, we believe that nobody should go into debt funding the early days of a business.
72% of female founders cite lack of access to capital as the #1 barrier to starting a business.
49% of women cite lack of access to coaches and mentors who have “been there, done that” as a major barrier.
31% of women cite lack of access to a support system, community, and connections to help them level up as another huge barrier to launching a business.
It's about more than just the funding.
IFundWomen provides a platform for women-led businesses to access capital through rewards-based crowdfunding, expert coaching, professional creative production, a collaborative entrepreneur community, and access to industry connections critical to launching and growing businesses.
The reason why IFundWomen is fundamentally different than anything on the market today is because of our proprietary coaching program, The IFundwomen Method, which brings three core principles together: Capital, Coaching, and Connections
