Government Grants
    #2123657 - 11/19/03 08:59 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

How does one obtain one of these.. without paying some shitty fee to sign up?
My government owes me lots of money and I'm not going to pay them back  :mad:

ever seen that guy on the infomercials with exclamation points all over his suits?  He sells this book which is a compilation of all the various ways to get free money from Uncle Sam.  My friend bought it and said its great. 

Other than that, looks like you're gonna have to wade through a lotta internet BS and paperwork and stuff.  Try going up to a college and asking the advisor (if its for an art grant).  Tuition grants are also mad easy to get, but you gotta go to school and maintain a 2.0 GPA :frown:

Business loans and grants?  fucking forget about it.  There is no such thing as "venture capitalism" any more.  Everyone wants a sure bet.  Why do you think that the same 10 businesses (blockbuster, starbucks, mcdonalds, subway) line the sidewalks of every city in a never-ending checkerboard pattern of crap?

I forget. I'll ask dude next time I see him. Just do a search for "free government money book" or something, I'm sure you'll find it.

well, I would get my friend to OCR it in, but its a pretty thick fuckin book. Really one of those big thickass references you kinda have to buy... I dunno... maybe your local library has a copy?

As far as starting your business with other people's money... The only way I've ever seen it happen is when you know some independantly wealthy people with a lot of cash to throw around that REALLY trust you. Then, you come up with a detailed business plan and make a proposal. I have a friend going through this right now... He wants to open an arcade. So he drew up a layout, expected costs, expected profits, advertising, all that shit... now he's shopping the idea around to all his dad's wealthy friends. I think he's already got a couple investors.

yeah, you gotta really have your shit together for the proposal, too.  You know, like numbers and charts and graphs and 3D models and shit.  You cant just be like: "Dude, I'm totally gonna build a hotdog stand or something.  Give me $100,0000.  I promise I'm good for it."
:lol:

I'm gonna be applying for a grant soon. Fortunately I already know the right people to talk to. I still am unsure how it's going to turn out. Having a business plan is an integral step. I'm looking at 30K to start a shiitake farm. Luckily, the local government is offering grant specifically for this purpose.

In the U.S. I've heared that it is quite difficult to obtain a grant unless you are handicapped or a minority.

(I don't mean to offend anyone with that statement of course...)

I was trying to get one for a small buisness, and pretty mush after we went through all of the paperwork and everything we noticed if you didn't have particular people working for you or you weren't disabled/minority yourself then you were SOL.

I still plan on trying to get one, but I had some serious heavy hitters in the buisness game trying to help me and it was still HARD AS HELL to achieve...

You gotta be 23 years old and an Independant tax status, with an income below a certain amount. Then you get pell grants and shit that adds up to like $2-3k a semester for freshman and sophomore year, then at Junior year, you start gettin about 5k a semseter.

Pell won't do much more than pay for tuition and books.
