The White House has a boatload of initiatives to help new business startups. Many of the initiatives are targeted at very specific business sectors or entrepreneurs (such as veterans). Here is a mega-page describing many of the programs.
Among the many other programs, Startup America has announced nearly a third of a billion dollars in "startup aid." Anyone planning on starting a new business needs to be aware of these programs in order to stay competitive in this new era of government entrepreneurial largesse. While there are also a number of Tennessee programs targeting new business, none appears to be structured for "startup aid" of this nature.
I have just recently become aware of these numerous programs and their scope. If anyone has experience with these program, please blog about it or add your comments below.
