Grants

My Founder Story awards micro grants to women owned small businesses pursuing their passion and purpose.

Women Business Owners Are Fueling the U.S. Economy

In 2019, there were:

12.9 million
women-owned businesses in the United States
9.4 million
workers employed by women-owned businesses
$1.9 trillion
in revenue contributed by women-owned businesses

Women Are Being Denied Critical Resources to Launch and Grow Small Businesses

Despite their contributions, female-identifying founders received less than a quarter of small business bank loans and a tiny fraction (less than 3 percent) of venture capital. On average, they received smaller investments and less favorable terms than men. My Founder Story is on a mission to disrupt the status quo.

Fierce Founders Fueled by Purpose Have a Distinct Advantage

Women who confidently communicate their business purpose and impact are more likely to receive funding and other critical resources to ensure success. My Founder Story provides tools and guidance for fierce founders like you to clarify and communicate your purpose with confidence.

Build Your Brand on Purpose

Brands like Beautycounter, Eileen Fisher, LÄRABAR and Wildfang were each built around a clearly defined mission, which was rooted in the founder’s WHY. My Founder Story works closely with women-founded purpose-driven businesses to clarify their WHY and communicate it in their brand stories, crafting memorable copy and bold visuals that engage audiences, influence decisions, inspire communities and ignite action.

Purpose-Driven Brands …

Yield a greater return on investment and outperform the stock market.

Are supported and recommended by consumers who share your values.

Attract topnotch employees who are more engaged, more satisfied and more likely to succeed.

We’re Building an Empowered Community of Fierce Founders Fueled by Purpose
