As the curtains come down on this year’s “Embracing Equity” Women’s Empowerment Business Grant initiative, we look back with admiration at the journey undertaken. Applicants showcased their businesses through detailed forms, captivating social campaigns, and strategic outreach, ensuring their ventures received as many votes as possible.
The outpouring of enthusiasm was evident, with hundreds of relevant applications flooding our desks. A heartfelt thank you to every single applicant for taking the time and effort to be a part of this transformative journey.
Over the course of this grant initiative, we received a vast number of email messages and follow-ups. Entrepreneurs from various backgrounds reached out with questions about the grant, application requirements, and other matters. Unfortunately, due to the sheer volume of messages, we were unable to reply to each and every query. We genuinely regret this oversight and would like to sincerely apologize to anyone whose question or message remained unanswered. We value each one of you and your dedication to making a mark in the entrepreneurial landscape.
Selecting our top three was no easy feat. The winning female entrepreneurs were chosen based on their unique input and the potential impact their businesses can make. We are excited to reveal that the rewards have been disbursed as follows:
🥇 First Place: US$10,000
🥈 Second Place: US$5,000
🥉 Third Place: US$2,500
We believe that these grants will serve as catalysts, boosting the growth of these female-owned small businesses. More than just the monetary benefit, they’re an investment into the broader ecosystem, fostering growth and prosperity within the local communities these outstanding entrepreneurs operate in.
While we are eager to celebrate each winner publicly, we respect their privacy. Hence, identities will remain undisclosed.
Congratulations to our winners! You’ve showcased determination, passion, and vision. We’re excited to see the ripple effect of your success, influencing and inspiring many more to come.
