About the BEACON Grant Program
While women’s entrepreneurship is on the rise, women still face disproportionate challenges gaining access to capital and other resources that businesses need to thrive. For this reason, the BEACON grant program is designed to incentivize collaboration, inclusiveness, and innovation within D.C.’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. BEACON is a community-led campaign to make Washington DC the most influential and supportive city for women entrepreneurs in the United States. They aim to make Washington, DC a model city to demonstrate how investors, companies, mentors, and government can work together to ensure women entrepreneurs have an equal opportunity to succeed.
