The Small Business Administration, or SBA, offers a funding program with access to loans, grants, and investors. The website explains in clear and simple terms what you will need to find an SBA-approved funder (like a business plan!) and walks you through the step by step process of identifying the best option for your business. They also offer in-person free support and business counseling at their local centers. Make sure to check out their Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contracting program.
