What is the best way to get a small business grant or loan?
Get in contact with your Small Business Developement Center in your area. They will help you get the forms together and the places to apply for this type of thing. These new small business loans are the most difficult type of loan to get, because of the business failure rate. You might have to get a personal loan. The SBDC has free help, classes, and seminars. That is a grea place to start and they can guide you through the whole thing. Links to these places are below.

Hi you will need a sound business plan - I would recommend that you use a professional company to help you with this. They will discuss your business ideas with you and help you design your company. www.bizguru.us My article: Entrepreneurs - Want To Start A Business With The Best Possible Chance Of Success? May help http://www.articleshut.com/index.php?page=article&article_id=26974 Any company that provides you with a loan will expect you to have some money of your own invested in the company. Most look at lending a maximum of 60%. Good Luck

First you have to ask yourself would this work? Does the interstate in PA, need an escort service? Research how many of them exist now and check to see if they are doing ok. If they are and there really is a market for more business, then I would work with a grant writer and write up a business plan, show how it could help the area you are moving to, then you would have to apply for the grant, and/or apply for the business loan at the bank, they will want to see your finances, your background if you would be able to handle such a venture will determine if they would finance it. It also depends on how much you would need to start up. You could actually put out the word you are starting the business and looking for potential clients, if you have a list of potential clients, that looks good too.

The best way is to get it from the bank. Natwest bank is the best they will give you loan and you will started paying back after six months.

Go to the bank with a business plan. Prepare the groundwork and they'll know your serious. Otherwise get a good lawyer first and take the other choice, but hey who said anything about sticking up a bank?

>> what i want to do is start up a pilot car / interstate escort service ( you know the cars that lead the "oversized' and "wide load" trucks down the interstates). Why....do you do that now? I'm asking because why would anyone fund a business that you're not an expert in? Have a business plan?

, Grants are the best way to Start a Business or go to College! As well as Foundations they also offer mney at no cost ' For interest the Univeracity of North Carolina has Grant Money availabe in their Arts program.!! As for loans they might have a small interest rate at the beginning',Then the bank can raise the interest rate , fees,and so on. If for reason your business may go bankrupted, Make sure that your business is Incorporated/. Which will separate business from personal fiances.The Bank can't get personal assets ll when you've Incorporated your business!.. Make sure you get that Grant!! It's free money! There is allot of money that know one remembers about , Katrina, Rita, Homeland Security, Helping are Soldiers by making something new or old What they need to fight or to relax! Our soliers are getting tired , To many tours in Iraq Make somethIng usefull to relax these guys and women.. Or make someting for our wouded > Go to Waler Reed and see what they need to be a productive citizen again!!!. Education, the Arts The university of North Carlina as a lot of money in their art foundation please check all Foundation's they are also free money!! Go to your local library they have many reference books on all the Foundations , Plus Grants Or any web sites which or Rep or Senator's there's a link to every Government program . Just have a lot of paitences when going through those programs.The forms are in the library . If you Can get a Grant you"ll never have to pay back. . A loan is a loan.! I know you may disl[ke an attorney however you'll need the best corparate lawyer in your State. He'll make sure you no every rule to follow ,taxes etc. RaeAnn

I tried to look into getting a small business loan & found out it really is not for a new business getting started. They want you to have been in business for something like two years to qualify. You will probably have to buy your equipment with credit or a loan from a family member. Work on getting excellent credit before you try to start, it will really hurt you if your credit is bad.

The easiest or probably more reliable way is most likely thru close relatives or friends. Other than that, you will need to create a very good business plan and go over it with a loan officer at the bank.

No such thing as a grant for that type of business. Grants are for non profits and cutting edge technology research etc. Not worth all the trouble for an SBA loan. For the small amount of money you need try a local bank, or go online to find a commercial lease company who will finance the truck and equipment. As for start up expenses, unless you can qualify for a small operating line of credit, I'm afraid these will be out of pocket. You should start saving now. Despite what you may read on the internet there is NO FREE LUNCH FOR SMALL BUSINESS.
