SBA helps entrepreneurs start a business which involves planning, making key financial decisions, and completing a series of legal activities. There are many resources for founders including grants:

The DC Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking (DISB) recently launched an Office of Innovation (OOI) to drive innovation in the financial services industry and promote economic growth and financial inclusion in the District of Columbia. The office is committed to encouraging the development and adoption of technology-based financial products and services, especially form members of communities that are underserved by traditional financial services companies.

Back in 2012 Industrious was an idea kicked around by two childhood friends, Jamie Hodari and Justin Stewart. Both were members of different coworking spaces with the same problem: Their businesses did better when they met clients in hotel lobbies and coffee shops — anywhere but their office. So they set out to create a workplace that combined the flexibility and ease of coworking with the professionalism and attentiveness you’d expect when walking into a Fortune 500.
