Is 2010 Your Year for an NASE Business Development Grant?

Feb 01, 2010
Posted by Molly Nelson -Since 2006, the NASE has awarded over $400,000 to member businesses who have a specific business need, but lack the finances to carry out that goal.  If your business could use some access to capital in 2010, you may be in luck - the NASE's Business Development Grant program is now accepting applications for 2010 awards!

To be eligible for an NASE grant, you must:
  • Be an NASE Member in good standing
  • Demonstrate a business need that could be fulfilled by the grant
  • Provide a detailed explanation of how you will use the grant proceeds
  • Show how the grant will improve your business growth and success
  • Offer supporting documentation such as a résumé and business plan

NASE Business Development Grants are awarded at the sole discretion of the NASE. Unfortunately, not everyone who applies will receive a grant. Decisions of the selection committee are final and are not subject to appeal. No application feedback will be given.
