    Does anyone know of any small business grants or start up company grants that I could apply to for a corp I am starting. Or does anyone know of any good grant writing companies?

    Well if your a white male in the US good luck. I don't me to be racist, sexist, etc. But in all honesty things are very curved to give people with a "disadvantage" the money. I myself tried looking around and you get questions like:

    - are you African American
    - are you a divorced women
    - are you of X ethnicity

    Those are just a few examples but, hopefully you understand my point from a factual perspective. And once again I'm not trying to racist or anything. This is just what I've seen in my experience...

    It's the same thing with loans, scholarships, etc. I'd say 90% of them ask you if your some race other than white. I don't think I've ever seen a white male scholarship because that would be "racist". But we have all sorts of scholarships for minorities, etc.

    I have no ethnicity, I'm neither disadvantaged nor advantaged; both are a state of mind that if you spent too much time contemplating on you'd lose time and money. Leave nothing to chance, most people are crazier than sh*t, and I'm the creator of my own destiny. A living breathing Lamborghini, a bold personality, with hair slick back I'm in your face.

    If you start thinking that way you won't need a grant.
