Raising Capital for Your Business
Important Considerations in the Early Stages of Business Life
When starting a business in this most challenging environment, it is important that you use your resources as efficiently as possible. This will allow you to get through the difficult early stages of business life. It is best to try to do as much as you can on your own to raise capital, but also be wise with respect to seeking direction when it counts most.
The following are important considerations for businesses trying to raise capital in the early stages of business life:
Meet with a banker/investment banker. Seek what programs are available for small businesses. Open appropriate bank accounts (bring formation papers, your tax ID#, and photo ID). Ask what you should do for now to establish credit for your business even if they will only offer your company a small credit card line. Your business’s credit, though different than your own, does depend upon your personal credit as well. This is the first step in establishing a credit history for your company for future borrowing.
Consider the use of a venture capitalist. Venture capitalists (VCs) tend to invest in an industry that they have had experience in. Typically, they have had success in their industry at one time or another and their company was either strategically sold, or went public. This experience has given them tremendous insight and is something they will look to leverage when investing in an opportunity.
