Sources of start-up capital
Where do I get start-up money?
Capital for a start-up will almost always come from the founders, due to the fact that the business has no track record upon which to base an investment decision.
But for those start-ups that have more initial merit, and for the more mature small businesses, here is a list of some classic capital sources:
- Friends and family
- Venture capital
- Angel investors
- Supplier/vendor financing
- The SBA Microloan Program for short-term start-up or expansion loans of up to $25,000.
