  • September 11, 2017

We get it; as a new startup company or organization, one of the most daunting tasks can be locating the necessary funds to help your company grow. At E.B. Howard Consulting, our biggest concern is providing your company or organization with the necessary tools to reach its full potential. That is why one of the many services offered by E.B. Howard is Funding Forecasting. With the seemingly endless funding opportunities available to you, finding what works best for your company can seem like an impossible job. At E.B. Howard, our team wants to guarantee that all of your valuable time and energy is put towards making your business thrive. We’ll take care of locating funding and provide you with a streamlined list of potential funders tailored to your company’s specific needs. So, what exactly does this process look like?

To begin, a representative from your organization will complete a quick questionnaire that will allow us at E.B. Howard to get a full understanding of all the ins-and-outs of your business. This is where we’ll learn about your company’s mission, vision, goals, and the problems you are working to solve. We want to get to know your business on a personal level to ensure we’re finding the best fit. We’ll also gather information regarding the amount of funding you’re looking for, as well as what type. Once we have this information, we’ll be on our way to locating the best possible funding for your organization.

Our team at E.B. Howard uses various nationally recognized databases and including our own highly cultivated database that includes 2,500+ opportunities. From this pool, we’ll use the information you provided us to locate funders that we feel will be the best fit for your company, based on the amount and type of funding you are seeking. This process involves researching hundreds of potential funders. Once we have found funders that fit your needs, we will begin the elimination process by removing any funders with barriers to applying that would stand in the way of your organization’s success. By the end, you will be provided with a streamlined list of funders personalized to your organization.

Once you have chosen your funders, E.B. Howard has services available that will give your business the best possible chance of receiving whatever funding you’ve chosen to pursue. Whether it’s Proposal Review Editing, Proposal Development, or Project Management, E.B. Howard will support your organization’s every step of the way and will ensure that your company’s future successes become a reality.
