      Ebusiness 101, Part 6: Finding Funding

      Article Description:
      ====================

      Every business needs start-up capital. These funds help you
      purchase furniture and fixtures, computers and inventory while
      still bringing in a livable wage during the first few years when
      most companies see more red than black. But how much you need and
      where this funding comes from differs from business to business.

      Every business needs start-up capital. These funds help you
      purchase furniture and fixtures, computers and inventory while
      still bringing in a livable wage during the first few years when
      most companies see more red than black. But how much you need and
      where this funding comes from differs from business to business.

      According to a Biz$hop article for Wachovia, the country's
      fourth largest bank and diversified financial services company,
      more than 17 percent of start-ups launch with less than $5,000
      cash. So before you develop a funding acquisition plan, calculate
      how much money your business can realistically generate to
      finance its own expenses. Then define exactly how much money you
      need to cover necessities, expansion or possible risks.

      Start-ups have several options for acquiring funding � from mom
      and dad to venture capital partners. Begin with your own
      resources including savings accounts or home equity. Next, tap
      into your family and friends. Next, research venture capital
      firms. These are companies that finance start-up ventures who
      have limited access to capital markets but need quick growth.
      Angel investors are another source of business financing. Angel
      investors are successful entrepreneurs that have money to invest
      in other companies. Newspaper ads and person-to-person networking
      is the best way to find angel funding sources. The Small Business
      Administration (SBA) also licenses Minority Enterprise Small
      Business Investment companies (MSBIs) and Small Business
      Investment Companies (SBICs) to help fund critical growth
      stages.

      Many small businesses have survived the first few years using
      credit cards and personal loans. Working or investment partners
      can bring in funding or services that can save your company
      money. For instance, if you partner with an attorney or a
      designer, you save a great deal on legal or design fees. When you
      need stronger financing, you'll need to discuss these goals with
      a commercial bank, savings and loan or finance company. You may
      qualify for a small business or SBA loan or line of credit. But
      make sure you have sufficient collateral to guarantee funding in
      the event of default. Borrowers want to make sure they give
      credit to start-ups that have as much confidence in their own
      success as the bank would be offering in loans. Stay tuned for
      Part Seven: Finding People in this ten part series.
