Access to Capital

Access to Capital



WIPP’s access to capital platform, “Breaking the Bank: Women Entrepreneurs & the Need for Capital” contains principles and recommendations. Capital is the lifeline of business. The ability to secure capital is often the determinant of an entrepreneur’s opportunity to start or grow a business. For women, however, accessing capital continues to be difficult. Women ask for less funding – on average, $35,000 less than men. In 2013, fewer than 1 in 3 loan applications for women-owned firms were approved. The Senate Small Business Committee report on women entrepreneurs found that women only receive 4% of all commercial loans.


WIPP’s policy recommendations:

  • Simplify intellectual property protections
  • Re-think credit scores
  • Develop female fund managers through “Emerging Managers” SBIC Program
  • Tax incentives for angel investors

Join WIPP’s Access to Capital Committee to get access to exclusive policy briefings and teleconferences with industry experts and policymakers on capital access related issues.  Committee members receive special communications on policy, regulations, and research on this subject matter.
