Catalyst Fund 2016: increasing access to finance for women-led businesses

The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) invites proposals from ANDE members interested in receiving support to fuel initiatives increasing access to finance for women-led businesses and supporting invention-based enterprises. Proposals must be received by 11:59pm EDT Friday, July 1. 2016.

The goal of the Catalyst Fund is to increase the productivity and effectiveness of ANDE members while creating tools and insights that can help the SGB sector as a whole. This year ANDE seeks to fund approximately five (5) proposals with up to $50,000 in grant funds each. Total funds available equal approximately $240,000 thanks to generous support from The Lemelson Foundation and S&P Global. The 2016 Catalyst Fund will place emphasis on funding two types of programs: those targeting financing for women’s entrepreneurship and proposals that aim to support invention-based enterprises.
