Financial Tools for your Business

Tax credits, business loans, and investors

There is no such thing as FREE money.  Loans must be paid back.  Investors (even “angel” investors) expect a return on their investment.  You can, however, investigate tax credits and abatements, pre-seed funds, low-interest loans, and investors.  Before applying for any program, you will need a solid plan.  Please use the  resources available to help you prepare.  If you’re not sure where to start, call the Chamber at (616) 754-5697.  We can help.
