Need an investor to help grow your startup? Here’s how to find an investor and what to look for.
Funding is crucial to starting a business and creating a thriving, growing entity. You may have initially self-funded your business with cash, relied on sweat equity, or used credit cards to finance your business. However, you’ll need to consider outside capital at some point if you want to continue growing your operations.
With venture capital, traditional bank loans and online crowdsourcing, today’s entrepreneurs have more funding options than ever. However, choosing the right investor type is critical. Different investors bring unique benefits and assorted types of equity, control and repayment requirements.
We’ll explain how small businesses can find and attract investors, and how to choose the right funding source. Not all capital is created equal; ensure you can live with the investor you choose.
