Over the past decade, the number of women-owned companies has grown at a rate five times faster than the national average, with Florida leading the way. At Working Women of Tampa Bay, we believe this movement is not only something to be celebrated but something to be cultivated moving forward. That’s why we created the Working Women Foundation: to build a supportive community of mentors and offer start-up grants to women entrepreneurs. By working together, we can continue our efforts to educate, motivate and inspire women in Florida to achieve their business goals.

"Seed Money" Grants
Are you a new entrepreneur who needs a little help getting your business off the ground? Or a more experienced entrepreneur who wants to start a new project for your company? The Working Women Foundation may be able to help!

We are currently accepting applications for "seed money" for women entrepreneurs needing a little assistance growing their business. Awards between $500-$1000 will be available to women entrepreneurs who can demonstrate proof of concept and a plan for how the funds will be used.

Since our launch in 2016, we've given away $15000 to more than 20 women-owned startups. Those recipients have reported increases in revenue, staff and exposure since receiving the seed money.

Join us in participating in The Power of 100 project. Become one of 100 women to donate $100 to help us seed 10 women small businesses in the next 10 months. Donors will be invited to a lunch where they'll help choose a seed money recipient. You can join the movement now by donating at paypal.me/wwfoundation
