A business needs funding to grow, expand and achieve profitability.  There are many business funding options available.  That does not mean it’s easy to find funding.  In fact, it can be difficult and the inability to find funding is one of the main reasons businesses fail. It is important to determine which funding source is the best fit for your business.

Some sources to consider are:

  • The funding source to start with is yourself
  • Loans from friends and family. Sometimes friends or family members will provide loans
  • Credit cards
  • Crowdfunding sites
  • Bank loans
  • Angel investors
  • Venture capital
