In the weeks, months and even years before you open a new business, you will likely find yourself worrying about where your start up capital will come from. While you might obtain a loan from a bank or financial institution that works will small businesses, you may need to turn to other sources to get the capital that you need.
One of the more popular ways in which people raise money for their new businesses today is with crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter and Fund Anything. These sites let you create a small business plan that shows why you need income, the amount you need to raise and other important information. You can even include items that you’ll give away to those who make a donation to your company. Though the website itself will typically take a cut of the funds you raise, you may raise enough to get your business off the ground.
