Finding Business Grants Tip #11
Ask friends

Believe it or not, sometimes just mentioning the fact that you are seeking a business grant to a friend can lead to some unexpected leads on business grants. So while your friend from the local coffee shop might not have a business herself, she might have heard about specific grants from someone else. And often people know someone who has received a business grant, so the whole six degrees from everyone will really pay off.

Your friend might also have more useful information too - perhaps they know someone who is a venture capitalist looking to invest in small start ups, or perhaps he or she would be interested in an angel investment. So don't hesitate to mention to others that you are seeking funding in many forms. If you don't want to seem pushy or like you are asking them to do it specifically, just mention it offhand as you talk about your business start up plans.
