Build Her Business is a crowdfunding campaign created to give Albertan women (like you) the opportunity to raise funds for their businesses, build community and receive mentorship.

We’re willing to bet that you’re not that different from Aymie—a go-getting, innovative, Albertan woman entrepreneur. Guess what? She raised over $9,000 for her business, The Curvy Shop, during last year’s Build Her Business campaign. We know you have what it takes to get the funds your business needs to reach new heights.

What the numbers say about women and crowdfunding

Statistics show that crowdfunding is a credible financing source where women outperform men. According to PwC Consulting, compared to men, women are 32% more successful in reaching their target and tend to pull in a higher average pledge amount. It’s time to get out there and own it—that’s why we created Build Her Business for women like you.
