A note from Caress 
on the impact of COVID-19

At Caress, we are saddened by the severe impact that COVID-19 is wreaking on our communities and on small businesses and entrepreneurs. We recognize that in this critical time, small businesses are struggling immensely and the disadvantages that women of color entrepreneurs face are only growing.  As a founding partner of IFundWomen of Color, Caress is proud to be supporting 200 women of color owned small businesses with $500,000 in grants for COVID-19 relief.

Meet Olivia Owens

IFWOC Creator & General Manager

Hi, I’m Olivia and I am so excited to welcome you to IFundWomen of Color! I created this platform, with the support of my team and founding partner Caress, because we know that accessing funding is extremely difficult for women of color. At IFundWomen, we are on a mission to close the funding gap and here’s what we know works: human to human coaching, network building, and a community of like-minded women in the hustle. Through IFundWomen of Color, you will get access to all of that and more to support you on your journey to launching and growing successful businesses. Have questions? We’re here for you! Send us a note at ifwoc@ifundwomen.com.
