Starting or running a business is by no means an easy road, but business people, by nature, are equipped to take on the challenge. Arming yourself with helpful information is one way to succeed, and the result of a successful business is often to grow. If you are looking to raise capital for your business, there are at least two ways to do so.
One can raise debt capital to gain immediate funds for the business. Debt capital, like any capital, necessitates that your business will have to pay somehow to get it. This particular type of capital is any business loan; one can have upfront funds, but will have to pay it back with interest. On the other side, you will be able to use that debt capital to grow your business and potentially make more than you owe. Examples of debt capital include small business loans, business lines of credit, and SBA loans.
Equity capital is a type of capital gained through investors or venture capitalists. Someone willing to put capital into your business will get a percentage of the equity, and will have some say in how you operate your business. This approach is like Shark Tank. An investor or venture capitalist and the business owner will agree to work together. The terms are negotiable, so it is important for the business owner to be comfortable with how the equity capital lender will be involved in the business.
Crowdfunding is one other way to raise capital for your business, but it does overlap with equity capital. Crowdfunding is a way for multiple people to invest privately or donate to your business. One can pursue this option usually through a crowdfunding website.
In general, you will find different strategies more useful than others depending on whether your business is newer or older. If your business is a startup, you may find that crowdfunding or seeking equity capital is a better option. If your company is more established and is over two years old, it will be easier for you to apply for business loans. Pure Finance Group can help you find the best loan for your business!
