Small Business Loans & Grants

We all know money is everything when starting a new business. Fortunately there are many groups that are pleased to give you money for starting up a legitimate business.

Ken Yancey, CEO of, offers 5 steps on the topic:

1.) Consider city, county, or state assistance programs for qualified small businesses. Some examples include tax abatements, urban-renewal set-asides, rural access, workforce training, and economic development.

2.) Contact your state senator’s or representative’s office. The staff there can be helpful in pointing you toward state funds or programs for businesses.

3.) Take advantage of “in-kind” credits. Like cash, these can be used as matching funds. In one case, a state program counted a company’s $200,000 local property-tax abatement as part of the matching requirement.
