Finding Business Grants Tip #8
Ask your local business groups

Local business groups often host networking breakfasts or lunches. Be sure to check for any local business groups (your local Chamber of Commerce is a great place to start checking for these types of business groups). Even groups such as Toastmasters can be valuable. Many local business groups offer their own business grants, although they are often for smaller amounts. But they will also very likely know about other business grants offered both for your city as well as for your state.

Find the next time the group meets and make a point to attend. Often you will not have access to the many resources they have available until you have attended your first meeting. And no, you do not have to have already launched your business to attend, they are used to seeing people in the start up phase of their businesses, so don't worry about looking out of place!

If there is more than one group in your city, or there is a general business one as well as one specifically for women, make a point of attending them all so you have that many more resources and leads at your fingertips.
