Due to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, 2020 was a challenging year for small business owners. In fact, Fortune reports that "More than 97,966 businesses have permanently shut down during the pandemic." Yelp data echoes this, illustrating that 60% of pandemic-related business closures are now permanent.

Despite COVID-19’s numerous challenges, women in the United States have continued to open or build their businesses. According to Fundera, 40% of U.S. businesses are women-owned and collectively generate $1.8 trillion a year. While many folks may be looking toward the Paycheck Protection Program or other forms of federal aid, women entrepreneurs can also find support in the form of these considerable grants and resources.
