Individual Development Accounts
Need cash to start your business? An Individual Development Account is a great way to start saving and have your funds matched. How does this work? You save $1000 to start your business and the program grants you $1000 for a total of $2000 (Note: match and total varies by year).
Develop your Business Plan
Connect with resources to help develop your business plan and network with a community of support. Edna Martin CC is a referral site for the Indy Chamber’s Business Opportunity Initiative (BOI). BOI offers a broad array of training programs, one-on-one business coaching and access to startup funds.
