Financing – the Basic Questions

Back to Financing Your Business

  • How do you define your need for money?  Is it to expand or is it to protect your business from risk?
  • How great are your risks? All businesses carry risks, and the degree of risk will affect cost and available financing alternatives.
  • In what state of development is the business? Needs are most critical during transitional stages.
  • For what purposes will the capital be used? Any lender will require that capital be requested for very specific needs.
  • How strong is your management team? Management is the most important element assessed by money sources.
  • Perhaps most importantly, how does your need for financing mesh with your business plan? If you don’t have a business plan, make writing one your first priority. All capital sources will want to see your business plan for the start-up and growth of your business. [LINK to STRATEGY SECTION]
