Which financial resource is right for me?
There are several types of funding options available to meet your small and medium business's needs. Each type has specific characteristics that are important to understand. Multiple funding types may be suitable for you.
Disclaimer: the recommendations are not exhaustive and do NOT guarantee approval.
Crowdfunding may be right for your business if the business has a large, supportive network willing to contribute to its success.
Grants are typically a no regret funding option, especially for businesses that are struggling financially, as the money does not need to be paid back.
Investors provide capital for a business usually in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity.
Loans allow a business the flexibility to cover their expenses or make necessary investments, while paying back the money over time, typically with some interest.
