How to get grants/loans?

I'm a young entrepreneur that is nearly done with the business plan aspect of my venture. I wish to buy out a current night club (the owner is retiring) and am looking to complete renovate the building, making it more up to date. I have the architect, interior designer, lawyer, accountant, and marketer all ready to go.  The question is, how do I go about getting the loans/grants/investors that I need for start up?  The only thing I truly own is my car >.>

I am in the same position you are. It may be best to apply for a grant as an LLC, the theory behind it is the government finds it easier to write a check to "Your Biz LLC", rather than write a check to plain old "Joe Entrepreneur". It's easier to get an SBA loan or to find an angel investor as an entity, because it's harder to classify you as a startup. Don't let tha discourage you- but you will meet resistance as an individual,but you just have to keep plugging away. A good place to start would be www.grants.gov  or  http://foundationcenter.org. Good Luck To You!
