The Truth About Small Business Grants
Thinking about getting a government grant as a way to help finance your small business? You aren’t alone. If you watch any T.V. (especially late night T.V.) or do much reading on the Internet sooner or later you will stumble on a tantalizing possibility for the small business owner: government grants. The holy grail of business financing (of any financing, really) a chunk of money that you never have to pay back. What could be better?
