“Typically when I see a grant I'm almost always assuming it's for a specific cohort and I wouldn’t qualify. Loans are very, very, very hard to get in the states. As far as going to a bank and getting $10k for your business, you're not going to get it.”

Royce Ard, My Amazing Maid

"The home improvement sector is missing something when it comes to funding. Home services isn't sexy like tech so it doesn’t get attention. It's very hard to get a grant as your average joe business.”

Steven Knight, Mosaic Home Services

"Even though I own a successful business (landscaping, cleaning, handyman, etc.) and it’s levelled up quite a bit—I don't think we're important enough to be offered grants. It’s awful for me to say, but that’s what I think. When I think 'grant' it feels more geared toward businesses higher up in the totem pole."

Mimi Carjaval, Nice Care Living
