7 Ways to Get Funding for Your Small Business

By Spodek Law Group | January 17, 2024

7 Ways to Get Funding for Your Small Business

Starting and running a small business takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and often some initial funding. Whether you need money to get your business off the ground or to help it grow, there are several options for securing financing. Here are 7 ways to get funding for your small business:

1. Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo allow you to raise money from a large number of people through the internet. This works kinda like an online donation drive – you create a campaign page with info about your business, a video, perks for people who donate, and a funding goal. If people like your idea, they can pledge money to support it. If you hit your goal, you get the money (minus platform fees). If not, backers aren’t charged. Crowdfunding works best for consumer products/projects with visual appeal.

2. Business Loans

Traditional bank loans are a common way to finance a small business. Banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America offer various small business loan programs that typically require a good credit score, business plan, and some operating history. The Small Business Administration (SBA) also has loan programs to encourage lending by guaranteeing portions of qualified loans made by banks and credit unions. SBA loans can offer lower down payments, longer repayment terms, and lower rates than conventional loans.

3. Business Credit Cards

Business credit cards like those from American Express or Capital One can provide quick access to funding as you grow your business. Cards with 0% intro APR periods allow you to make purchases without interest for 6-12+ months. Cash back cards offer statement credits for your spending. Note that business cards require a personal credit check and guarantee when applying. Be sure to make payments on time to avoid high interest rates.

4. Angel Investors

Angel investors are high net worth individuals who invest their own money into startups and small businesses they believe have long-term growth potential. Local angel groups like Golden Seeds and Alliance of Angels have networks of angels that gather to hear startup pitches and potentially invest on the spot. You’ll need an excellent business plan, financial projections, and presentation skills to convince angels to back you. The upside? Angel money doesn’t require repayment like loans or giving up company ownership like venture capital deals.

5. Small Business Grants

The government and organizations like non-profits/foundations provide grants for certain types of small businesses. These are effectively gifts of money that do not require repayment or equity. Grants are very competitive to win and often have strict requirements around your business location, expenses, number of jobs created, etc. But they can be a fantastic way to fund your startup without debt or giving up ownership if you qualify. Most grants are local/state programs, so research what’s available in your area.

6. Equipment Financing

If you need funding to purchase equipment like machinery, IT systems, delivery vehicles, or other fixed assets, equipment financing allows you to essentially “lease” the equipment over 3-5 years. Retaining ownership incentivizes you to make the payments. Rates can be very reasonable if you have good credit and business finances. Vendors like Nav and OnDeck provide fast online applications, approvals, and funding.

7. Personal Loans

Online lenders like SoFi and LendingClub offer personal loans with fixed monthly payments, no collateral, and loan amounts up to $100K. While not technically a “small business” loan, you can use a personal loan for your business if you need capital quickly or don’t qualify for other financing yet. Just be cautious borrowing personally for business reasons. Defaulting on the loan could put your personal assets at risk.Starting a small business is no easy feat, but securing financing doesn’t have to be daunting. With a mix of credit, loans, personal savings, and federal or local resources, your dream of small business ownership can become a reality. Reach out anytime if you want to discuss specifics for your funding situation – we’re always happy to help!
