Small business owners and entrepreneurs who want to start or grow a small business should consider looking at The Leadership Grants Organization for assistance. This national organization awards grants every year to entrepreneurs ranging from work-at-home projects to multi-location businesses.
Grants are based on the company's plan for ongoing self-sufficiency and future success. The grant money helps small business owners either get started or grow their businesses. Grant money can be used for legitimate business costs such as inventory, equipment, goods, services, training and professional services.
Each grant request should be submitted with a well-organized and professional business plan. Applications are judged by a panel of volunteer experienced business leaders and entrepreneurs. There are no application fees required to submit a proposal. Businesses must be prepared to start their business within 6 months and require funding of $1,000 to $100,000. They must be for-profit businesses. The grants are open to both U.S. and Canadian citizens.
The Leadership Grants Organization is funded by donations from business leaders, sponsors and private corporations. They have offices in Morristown, New Jersey, and Toronto, Canada.
