New Funding Program Creates Venture Capital in Texas

There is no question that small businesses have been far from thriving since about 2008 when the economy tanked, but a host of programs have been erected, which aim to help small businesses open their doors. Various programs, such as the CAPCO programs, have been created to stimulate the economy and help businesses get on their feet, which has proven to be almost impossible over the last few years. This is due to the fact that few banks have been willing to dole out money to various businesses, as there has been a decently high propensity for these new businesses to fail, which in turn hurts the banks, as they were the ones that loaned the money.

CAPCO has been created as a means to fix this issue, and as a way to create jobs in the community and drive further taxes in the future through creating successful businesses. Although some people are under the impression that these sort of programs are actual cash that is given to banks, which is then used to hand out to various businesses that have provided a good business plan and put in an application with the banks, the reality is that the money these banks receive is in the form of tax credits. This means that the banks will not have to pay back a certain amount of money at the end of the year and can thus use that amount of money to help businesses to get started.

It is essentially a way of diverting money to businesses that need a helping hand. The end result is great, as there are a ton of businesses that can get started and open up their doors, and at least have a fighting chance to be successful. When they do start generating income, they will inevitably pay a good amount of tax, which in turn comes right back around to the government.

When look at in this way, it is a huge investment, as the money is never wasted, but is simply used to expand the economy in a constructive way. There really is no loser in this type of set up, which is why there have been so many of these programs that have started to pop up all over the country in places like Texas, which have been used to productively help a handful of businesses in the local area get started, as well as create jobs.
