Grants Program
Awarding Grants to Women-Led Tech Startups

Tech Startup Grants Program
Applications Open November 28, 2022
Helping to close the funding gap by backing women-led tech startups globally.

Women Who Tech transformed the Women Startup Challenge at Google to ensure everyone's health and safety. In its place, we launched the Women Who Tech Startup Grants Program to continue funding game-changing, women-led tech startups virtually during this pandemic.

How Does the Grants Program Work?

Equity-free grants will be awarded by Women Who Tech to women-led tech startups on a rolling basis through 2023. Access application FAQ for more information.

For each grant period:

  • Women Who Tech will open a call for applicants based on different themes. Sign up here to be alerted for when our next grant cycle opens up.
  • Our jury and grants committee will select five finalists to participate in our virtual pitch coaching and pitch series.
  • Startups may re-apply for grants as long as they meet the eligibility criteria and were not already awarded a grant from the Women Who Tech Startup Grants program.
