Funding Menu

Non-dilutive Capital Funding for Startups & Small Businesses

Looking for funding? Funding that won't take equity from your startup or business? Funding that allows you to own 100% of your business with ZERO repayments to NO ONE. No debt. No equity.

What We Do

 

We help small businesses locate non-dilutive funding like grants, pitch competitions, accelerators, and so much more. We screen, verify, filter, and develop a hand-curated personalized Funding Menu for your business, saving you time.

A Funding Menu will allow you to know what the funding landscape looks like over the next 12 to 24 months for your business.

Let us develop a highly curated Funding Menu to fit your specific funding needs. We can identify various funding opportunities that can help sustain existing initiatives or make new plans a reality.
