Managing money means keeping accurate accounting records and understanding what those records mean. Getting Ready to Fund Your Business has explanations for many of the key accounting systems.
It also has a Funding Toolkit that lists the types of information you should have available to make an application for funds more competitive. This is true, whether you are turning to outside investors, non-profit agencies, or the public sector for loans.
Get Financing also provides summaries of various Sources of Business Capital. The Funding Programs section is the most popular part of The Resources. It lists potential loans from federal, state, regional, and local agencies. The US Small Business Administration is only one of the agencies whose loan programs. Each program has its own requirements and benefits. Of special interest, is the subsection on Government Grant Scams.
Reading and understanding each of the sections in Get Financing can help make a company more solid financially.
