Business Funding For Women

Donna asks…

Are there any Business Men/Women who have had Cancer and are still alive?

We are doing a fund raising event to do with learning for life a program that most schools across the country use, we have to do a Business enterprise and we make money to donate to a charity- we are donating to a cancer trust but we were wondering if there were any Business Men/Women we could contact who have had a form of cancer?

Our school has said that we are aloud to ask companies for donations if we are able to get them, we would love to raise over £500, so I was just wandering if there was any so we could get some tips and maybe ask for donations to help people who weren’t so lucky.

Thank You

I think you are talking about angel investors and its not exclusively for women. An angel investor invests his or her own money in your business idea in exchange for a percentage ownership. There are angel investor networks all over the country – ie. Groups of angel investors who meet to discuss funding worthy oppertunities. You may want to google your city name + angel investors network to see if something comes up for your area. Or call your local SCORE office (you can look up your local SCORE affilitate at FYI – SCORE is the Service Corp of Retired Executives its a nonprofit group affiliated with the SBA that offers free consulting to businesses or potential business owners. They are a wonderful resource! By the way, angel investment programs are not “grants” you have to pay the investors back through partial ownership or other repayment methods.
