🏦 Where and How to Get Business Grants?
Business grant is one of the best methods to get funding for your business. The benefit of business grant is that it is a non-binding financial aid. It means that you have no responsibility to repay the money, unlike a business loan. However, unlike a business loan, it is harder to get a business grant.
Do you know the best place to get a business grant? Both offline and online. Then, how to get the business grant from each of these sources?
It is really interesting but what would be the trade-off if there is no responsibility to repay the money?
I said, big business men and women ,can get grants from big organisations like African Development Bank,if the project is expected to create 1000 jobs ,they will fund for purposes of reducing poverty in certain countries.
Business grants are really hard to come by, but online if search you can find some and apply for some. If luck falls on you, and it’s possible you can get.
Not easy to get it.you can try to get it offline trough out the person you know well,closer friends and family members ,by exposing your good projects i think those who wants you to succeed will help you.

Here in the UK there are a few different places to obtain business grants. You have to put forward a detailed business plan to show what you are going to do with the money. The grants vary from £500 to £100000.

Yes Mr Eli what you said is true, it is not easy to get a bussiness Grant in Africa, in my country, there are some institutions that offer such help, but you need a significant project, realistic and achievable to obtain the money from them.
Yes, it’s definitely not easy in my country Uganda, but I can say about other countries because I don’t know how systems work in those countries.
It’s the same in my country Gunnea Conakry, there are many institutions that can offer bussiness Grant, but it takes a long process and sometimes people are selected by friendship, relationship.
