Small Business Administration
A tool for planning on how much financing your business will take and the best ways to go about funding. We really liked the section on crowdfunding, because most people would never even consider this route. --Ryan
A "how-to” guide for Vets on getting everything started in their entrepreneurial adventure. I thought it was more reader-friendly than others I've come across. It was independently written, so it did a great job at highlighting the best resources available and there's a bunch of opportunities I didn't know existed. Also has a helpful section on the most advantageous loans and grants available and how to seek them out and qualify. --Ryan
Bankrate.com claims to be the trusted source of financial rates and information for
outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times,
CNBC and Bloomberg, just published a guide detailing what
assistance options are available for those with physical disabilities,
specifically those within our armed forces, and I am hoping you can have
this included on your page.
