Where to Fund a Small Business
Contrary to popular belief, business plans do not generate business financing. True, there are many kinds of financing options that require a business plan, but nobody invests in a business plan. Investors need a business plan as a document that communicates ideas and information, but they invest in a company, in a product, and in people.
Other business funding source resources:
Bootstrap – The Bank of Me, Myself and I
Traditional Funding – Bank Loans & SBA Backed Loans
Outside Investment – Angels, Venture Capital & Partners
Crowd Funding – LendingClub.com, Kickstarter.com, IndieGoGo.com, Fundable.com, CrowdTilt.com
