Many businesses call us every day seeking capital. Many of these requests have little to no validity.
Many just need to be pointed in the right direction.
Many people do not know about the various services from our own US Government agencies. Here are the various agencies and their direct links that you should consider. You do not need to pay an expensive broker or consultant to access any of these agencies. Find out which agency office that is closest to you and that best fits your needs. Call them, email them, set an appointment, but be proactive. They all are there to help you. Do not be intimidated. Your tax dollars pay for all of the potential services offered.
These are all the official US Government web sites that can assist you with everything from funding, local market data, introductions, various type of insurance, and a whole host of other services both domestically and overseas.
