In a blog posted earlier this month, RSG featured covidcap.com, an online database of global, national, and local funding resources for small businesses developed by CASE at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.  This inventive tool helps small businesses navigate the landscape of funding options, narrowing it down to those which might best suit their needs.

Similar to covidcap.com, Funding Finder is another online resource looking to relieve small businesses of the daunting and sometimes fruitless pursuit of available funding opportunities during these trying times.  While helping small businesses find the financial resources they need now, Funding Finder also helps alleviate the challenges presented when trying to research the best options out there. 

Developed by Excelerate America, this frequently updated online database features COVID-19 small business relief options on a local and national level.  Site users simply enter their business’s zip code and are then directed to a page featuring snapshots of programs available based on the zip code search.  Each program snapshot provides an overview of the funding opportunity including the type of funding, program highlights, and a “learn more” feature that provides users with the program’s official website and application details.
