You can apply here in the United States for grants. The process can take quite some time but with due diligence, it may help your small business survive.

Grants can come from the federal government, your state government, your college or career school, or a private or nonprofit organization. You may have heard of the Barstool Fund started by Dave Portnoy.

The Barstool Fund raised over $39 million to support 341 businesses to date. That is a form of a grant where the money does not have to be paid back.

Anyone can also donate to the fund to help small businesses in the United States.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Money seems to be a fairly necessary component for running – and leveraging – a small business Lisa. Good tips here. I watch the show Billions on Showtime; I went through the series twice. Billionaires tend to borrow money to leverage, or seek seed money; home businesses often go the same route to expand and grow.
