Advice for Nonprofit Start-upsby Chataun Denis on 07/26/15
Tip #1 - Anticipate financing the start-up of your company with personal funds. It’s highly likely that you won’t be awarded grant funding during your first two years in business. The days of getting a grant simply because you had a good idea are long gone. Nowadays, funders want to see two years of measurable outcomes before they even consider your application. Businesses start and fail every day. If you can prove that your company has longevity, is profitable, and can make a positive difference then you’re a good candidate for a grant award.
