Do Small Business Grants Really Exist?

If you're a small business owner, there may be grants available to you.

These grants are a bit more scarce than those available to nonprofits, but they certainly do exist. Don't miss the opportunity to have your dream funded.

Why are grants more preferable than small business loans?

Capital is possibly the most common reason hindering SME’s from launching out.

small business grantsAs a Coordinator in this field, I understand the need for small businesses to receive funding. Forty percent of the grant writer jobs posted on are for small business owners. This is further proof that grants for businesses and entrepreneurs are out there!

Searching for funding can be a dauting task. In addition to browsing available grants, I urge you to research different avenues to assist with the finacial burden. Crowdfunding can be a great strategy to raise funds for your small business or startup. With a crowdfunding campaign, you can raise the capital you need while building a network of emotionally invested followers.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is also a helpful source for small business owners, helping business owners create, build and expand.

These are just a few of the ways to help you locate the funding for your small business. I am here to cheer you on. Do not give up! Stay encouraged and know that there is always a way.

Oh, and now that President Donald Trump's goal is "To make America great again!" economically, who knows how many new small business grants he will be releasing, Stay encouraged!
