Nevertheless, the major concern for every entrepreneur seems to be mobilizing the funds that will fuel the business operations until it gains a strong foothold. If you are wondering how to fund your startup, here are a few options you can consider.

An Angel Investor is a great option for seed funding that will help grow your business. An angel investor is a high net worth individual looking to invest their funds in a profitable venture. In general angel investors are seeking 3 to 5 times return on their investment in 3 to 5 years.
