Grants

Grants are typically a no regret funding option, especially for businesses that are struggling financially, as the money does not need to be paid back.

Loans

Loans allow a business the flexibility to cover their expenses or make necessary investments, while paying back the money over time, typically with some interest.

Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding may be right for your business if the business has a large, supportive network willing to contribute to its success.
