The US economy is increasingly reliant on the work and determination of female entrepreneurs. Women are starting and running businesses at a staggering rate, having started 1,821 new businesses every day last year! Receiving just 3% of venture funds for their startups, women have a 69.5% success rate of crowdfunding for their businesses. This is the story we see and hear every day and the reason why AngeLink launched our Angel Grant program to support Women Entrepreneurs!
