Interesting to see that folks outside the U.S. are also in search of the elusive free money (grants).
Ever since the late night infomercials starting touting free government money people have gotten it into their heads that there are grants available for new business startups. This is just not true.
If you are looking for funding for a new small business startup you will need to look elsewhere. Grants are generally meant for non profit companies or companies that can provide major economic stimulus to a community.
A typical new start up will need to be funded through good old fashioned savings. Loans have always been difficult to obtain for a new start up and now it`s that much more difficult. Angels, usually friends/family, are another option, but even Venture Capital groups are not interested in the little start up. They generally fund businesses that have a proven track record and are ready to go to the next level.
Generally speaking, you should not waste your time or money in search of grants.
