Private Equity - Investments in your Business
Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors
Some business owners trade a piece of their business for money or capital. They want others to invest in their business. Depending on the size of the business or the size of the investment, a lender could be a venture capitalist (larger) or angel investor (smaller).
Other types of financing also exist. These types of financing are called alternative lending or alternative financing.
One option is Crowdfunding. When a person gives a small amount of money to a business owner, they can receive a reward for investing or receive equity in the business for investing. Business owners usually use an online format to request crowdfunding investments.
