Resource: Loans for Women-Owned Businesses in NYC
Details: Crowdfunding is a great option for women-owned businesses. Crowdfunding means raising money from many people, typically through a campaign on the internet. Now, the City of New York is helping campaigns for crowdfunded loans succeed by pledging the first 10%!
WE NYC has partnered with Kiva, a platform specializing in crowdfunded loans, to help more women entrepreneurs achieve crowdfunding success. Participating in WE Fund Crowd means WE NYC will be your first lender, pledging 10%, or up to $1,000, of your crowdfunding goal. Friends, family, and new supporters who see your campaign will know that WE NYC believes in your business and your dreams.
