Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso — your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
There are many sources of capital.
There are family and friend loans.
There are bank loans.
There are revenue share loans.
There are equity investments in the form of convertible notes and equity ownership.
There are various combinations of the above.
The key is to figure out the end game for the business and ask how you plan to pay the investor back.
If you plan to keep the business for the next 20 years, then a loan would be best so you can pay off the investors in a timely manner.
If you plan to build a business that you will sell for a nice gain, then equity is a candidate.
Once you know how the startup will finish, you can choose the appropriate source of capital for your needs.
Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
Let’s go startup something today.
