Montana Women’s Business Center Announces 3rd Annual Impact Grant Competition
The Montana Women’s Business Center (MTWBC) at Prospera Business Network has announced the grant opportunities for the 2021 MTWBC Impact Grant competition. Prospera raised $15,000 at the 2020 Prosperity Party fundraiser last September that will fund three grants to women owned businesses in Montana. Each applicant is challenged to share a compelling story of their business and their strategy to utilize the funds. Businesses can apply for a $2,500, $5,000, or $7,500 reimbursement grant to boost their business growth. A selection committee will review all qualifying applications and select finalists in each grant category.
The 2021 MT Women’s Business Center Impact Grant applications will open on January 18, 2021. Montana’s women entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply grant dollars to take their businesses to the next level by creating and retaining high paying jobs, increasing productivity, or supporting other female entrepreneurs. Applications must be submitted by February 26 at noon to be considered. To apply, please visit: https://www.prosperamt.org/womens-business-center/impact-grant.
Finalists in each grant category will present a pitch at a virtual event March 30 at 4:30 pm. Judging will take place with the selection committee and winners will be announced during the live event.
