There Are No Grants To Start A Business?

Of course the above title is wrong!  I have seen so many grant programs for for-profit business startups that it was enough to give me a headache!

There is a grant program for comic book writers, songwriters, photographers and film-makers.  There are grant programs for women, minorities, children, and inventors.

A lot of this frustration must come from the fact that people get frustrated when they try to find this kind of information.  But just because you haven't found it yet doesn't mean that the information is not out there - you have to keep on looking because believe me the grant programs are out there (and there are some strange ones that are out there as well).

No matter what kind of business you want to start there is probably a grant program out there that you are eligible for and even if you can't find one that you think you may be eligible for you can MAKE yourself eligible if you just tailor your business to the eligibility requirements of those funding programs that are most related to what it is you are trying to do.

All this talk about there being no grant programs for for-profits and/or start-ups is absolutely and totally false!
