I am a 23-year-old woman focused on building a successful Independent Record Company. I have been operating a home-based music production company for 4 years now and have worked with hundreds of local musicians producing industry-standard CDs/DEMOs, while releasing my own original projects as well. I am now trying to take things to the next level and setup an Indie Record Label storefront. I'd like to still keep the company home-based... studio downstairs and home upstairs, to cut down on expenses. I need this money to help with living costs while building the business as well as providing for equipment, inventory, legal, and marketing costs. A full business plan and grant proposal is ready and waiting. Any guidance you may have regarding which Grants that are applicable, is welcomed. Thank you.
