The book, Target Funding: A Proven System to Get the Money & Resources You Need to Start of Grow Your Business by Kedma Ough is by far the the most thorough book I have ever read on getting money for startups and small businesses.
As someone who has created a couple of businesses, I know how hard it is to raise money. Target Funding is a complete guide to finding sources of funds, whether it be for an invention, a technology venture, a startup, a small business, and even franchises.
The book goes into great detail on funding if you fit into a special category, such as veterans, people with disabilities, minority, and women.
Startups are not just for young people. If you are over 50, you may be eligible for ROBS, Rollovers for Business Startups. Never heard of them? Then you better check out page 120 in the book.
How about an IDA, an individual development account, for setting aside funds for starting or expanding a business. If you haven’t heard of this, go to page 277.
Ough has done an outstanding job compiling all this information. I highly recommend Target Funding.
