  • How To Fund Your Business Idea

    Bootstrapping, family and friends rounds, angel investors, venture capital and crowdsourcing...there are a lot of ways to fund a company if you really want to be an entrepreneur.
    But before you chase the greens, there are some things to consider.
    First, ask yourself these seven questions before you ask for funding.
    If you still want to pursue your idea, then you need to figure out which source of funding is right for you. Should You Pursue Venture Capital Or Bootstrap Your Company? Keep in mind, this decision depends largely on the type of business you're starting.
    Also, a lot of entrepreneurs choose multiple forms of funding as their business grows. For example, it may make sense to bootstrap your startup initially, but after one year of draining your bank account, it might be a good idea to secure venture capital as well.
    So, here are some options:
    Friends And Family Rounds
    One reason F&F rounds are worth considering:. Check out all the pros and cons, as well as advice from entrepreneurs who have secured funding from loved ones:
    The Do-It-Yourself Method: Bootstrapping
    Bootstrapping is favorable because it means you won't owe anyone anything. Unfortunately, it also means your bank account will drain quickly. Bootstrapping is a good option for people with a chunk of money saved up, a cheap product launch, and a way for their business to make money relatively quickly (for example, if you're running an
    Venture Capital and Angel Investors
    You can raise a lot of money this way, and you can get the support of professionals who have worked with other startups; venture capitalists can offer great advice and connections. One drawback: they'll want equity and you'll lose some of the company's control.

      The only grants available these days to entrepreneurs are hard to find and most require some investment on the part of the business owner in order to qualify. Call your local small business development center to find out about available grants. you can combine funding from various sources to create a suitable package.

        Another option would be if your personal or business credit rating is 600 or higher, then you might want to consider a short-term microloan from a peer-to-peer lending platform. With P2P lending, business owners submit a request for funding to the site including a short description of what the money will be used for as well as some of their current financial information. Individual investors then contribute small amounts of money until the desired loan amount has been reached.

          Hi Gary,

          P2P lending sounds really interesting. What are the best sites on the web to start researching this type of funding method?

          Wouldn't peer to peer lending basically just be a form of crowd sourcing?

            I really like your concept and logo, with your business name being catchy and most amusing.

            Unfortunately I also doubt you will receive sponsorship. And with loans you have to pay them back but with interest.

              Getting Sponsorship is difficult path. For that better we can contact a bank for funding.

                I am very interested in pursuing "crowd funding" however I have heard conflicting information about the legality of it.

                One of the popular crowd funding sites that provided a utility for collecting funds from the crowd was contacted by the state securities division and forced to take that feature down.

                Does anyone know what the latest laws are pertaining to this?

                Thanks

                  Put up collateral. Depending on the size of the loan, you might offer your car, house or other type of property.

                        Great information, I was asked to give the audience a high level overview on the various sources of money for aspiring entrepreneurs. I began with the questions an individual should ask himself before deciding to seek funding. These are: how much money is needed? , how will the money be spent?,what will be the results?, are you willing to give some equity?, can you pay back a loan?
