In talking with the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development we learned
the bottom line is money is rarely just given away to start a business.
The website, thinkkentucky.com, is a great place to get started. You'll
find information on small businesses and most importantly what you need
to know to get started on the website. It also has an area set aside
just for information on funding and or buying a business. The small
business services division suggests you do all your homework before even
thinking about starting a venture.
Now if you are thinking you are gong to get free money to start, lets
say a daycare or restaurant, the experts say that's pretty much not
going to happen. You can apply for a loan; thinkkentucky.com has all
kinds of information about the different loans that are available to
you. As for grants, that money is usually restricted and only available
to certain agencies.
