Grants and Techincal Assistance

It is quite com­mon for US small busi­nesses (such as ours) to com­plain about how much assis­tance “big” com­pa­nies get, while “the lit­tle guy is for­got­ten”. Though there may be some truth to that, it is impor­tant to note that there are a great many grants and tech­ni­cal assis­tance pro­grams that assist small busi­nesses. The prob­lem is that small busi­nesses often do not have the where­withal to find them and to avail them­selves of the oppor­tu­ni­ties pre­sented by these pro­grams. That is where Ver­ti­cal Opti­miza­tion comes in.

The key is to find these grants and to be able to uti­lize them for small busi­ness devel­op­ment. Typ­i­cally, most small busi­ness own­ers do not have the time or where­withal to dig through thou­sands of pages of Fed­eral reg­u­la­tions to iden­tify grant oppor­tu­ni­ties. Ver­ti­cal Opti­miza­tion works with many gov­ern­ment agen­cies to expose small busi­nesses to oppor­tu­ni­ties that are avail­able to them.

For instance, there are grants that cover travel for small busi­nesses as part of their inter­na­tional busi­ness devel­op­ment efforts. There are thou­sands of grants and incen­tives for hir­ing in cer­tain sec­tors, tech­nol­ogy devel­op­ment, busi­ness expan­sion, etc. etc. These grants rep­re­sent bil­lions of dol­lars in assis­tance to assist small busi­nesses. There are many local, state and fed­eral pro­grams that sub­si­dize the busi­ness devel­op­ment costs for small busi­nesses. It is typ­i­cally the case that some of these grants are often tar­geted to spe­cific sec­tors. How­ever, most busi­nesses in those sec­tors do not even know of the exis­tence of many of these pro­grams. The amount of writ­ing and doc­u­men­ta­tion required to access these grants is yet another obsta­cle to small busi­ness participation.

Our task is to iden­tify the right oppor­tu­nity and help your small busi­ness ben­e­fit from pro­grams that were designed to assist you.
