Dear Readers, 

We are taking a break from our regular programming today to bring you tangible ways to get informed/stay educated on issues of race, support the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and put an end to police brutality and racial injustice. We collected some of today's content from other sources including She Podcasts, Bello Collective, Antiracism Resources for White People, and educator Camille Buchanan (thanks to all). This is not designed to be a comprehensive list; for a more extensive collection of resources please visit this Google page, or do some of your own digging. It doesn't take much.

In peace, love, solidarity, and action,

A message from MAINSTREET

Run a startup? You’re owed $50K.

Really, $50,000? Yep. If you run a tech startup, you’re owed fifty grand

Is this for real? Yes. Every year, state and federal government officials set aside billions of dollars in tax credits to make it easier to start a business. The issue? They’re terrible at marketing. These billions sit unused, paid for by your tax dollars.

How do you get it? Lots of mind-numbing paperwork. But, you can skip all that by using MainStreet and letting them do everything for you. 90% of startups get cash in less than an hour, and it’s free to qualify –MainStreet only gets paid if you get cash.

Why haven’t I heard of this? Because the money lives in a bunch of different, disparate programs (like the R&D Payroll Tax Credit, the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, and the Employee Retention Credit) that you most likely qualify for, but haven’t heard of. Most accountants don’t want to do the paperwork, so the credits sit unused. MainStreet’s gotten companies millions of dollars incl. Sandbox VR, Pipe, and hundreds more.

OK, where’s my $50k? Right here. Get 25% off your account for life and score that sweet, sweet cash you’re owed in just 20 minutes. 💰
