Government grant to open a comics shop?

Someone recently did a search looking for information about getting a government grant to open up a comics shop.  Interesting notion don't you think?  Here is a link to an interview with someone who is an actual comic book store owner.

Do you know that 2 comic book writers got a $5000 grant and a $20,000 loan from their government in Austraila!

So you want to get a government grant to open a comics shop?  A lot is going to depend on you!  Do you know that there is a grant available to you if you move your business to Canada?  Not what you're looking for?   How about this?  There is a very interesting concept where in order to be able to receive a grant for your business, the property/building that you want to buy you just categorize it as (---deleted-----).  Your are part real estate investor and part business owner!  Now remember you still have to provide the same information as far as business plans, budgets, outlooks/forecasts or whatever the particular grant application process is.  It's a sneeky way to get around something but as long as you are following the terms of the grant then you can apply for it just like everyone else.
