C0001 How to Acquire Grants for Small Businesses - 6/20/19 

Grants are not only for non-profit ventures.  There are a number of grants for small businesses and start-ups, which can be a substantial help to those wanting to reduce reliance on loans and equity. This workshop will help you both locate grants and navigate the application process. 


Krista Tuomi is a professor in the International Economic Policy program at the School of International Service, American University. She has worked for many years as a policy analyst in the areas of innovation and investment and recently her focus has been on best practice in the start-up investment climate, particularly on policy related to angel investing, crowdfunding and seed financing.  Her passion for the field of innovation and entrepreneurship extends into her pro-bono work which includes working with SCORE, Boots to Business, the Veteran Small Business Challenge Competition, Syracuse's Institute for Veterans and Military Families, and the Angel Capital Association.
