The Center for Women and Enterprise, the NH Women's Foundation and iFundWomen, the crowdfunding ecosystem designed for female entrepreneurs, announced the launch of iFundWomen New Hampshire, a statewide initiative to drive funding to early-stage women-led businesses.
According to a statement, funding options for female entrepreneurs remain limited with women receiving just 2.2 percent of the venture capital dollars allocated. This leaves few traditional options for female business owners who are left to max out credit cards or take out loans to fund their startups. iFundWomen New Hampshire is a solution to this funding problem, providing women-owned businesses with the access to capital they need to help them successfully launch and grow, create jobs, and have a positive impact on NH’s economic development.
“The Women’s Foundation is proud to support the Center for Women and Enterprise and iFundWomen New Hampshire because we believe providing tools, resources and funding to women business owners will positively impact women, families, and communities across the Granite State. We are excited to see this statewide initiative grow,” says Tanna Clews, CEO.
