I just started a vending machine business to get my feet wet so that I can start working for myself. I need help on how to get grants for small businesses
I'm close friends with the CEO of Square1, a non-profit small business accelerator. He has a fulltime grant writer on staff to help identify and apply for grants. Reach out to them and give them my name, Keith will help you out!
I have always found the local Chamber of Commerce to be helpful. Most good sized chamber offices have an SBA person visiting routinely and also a SCORE team who can help with creating a business plan.
Here is a helpful link on small business grants and loans for veterans, there are a lot of programs for veterans through the Small Business Administration: https://www.nerdwallet.com/article/small-business/small-business-grants-for-veterans
In addition, go to our "Community" tab and search our "Advisors". From there, you can filter by "Small Business" and then sort by experience level and zip code. After that, you can directly message one of our advisors to get advice on your small business you are developing. Good luck!
