Raising Capital For Your Business

The only real experience I have with raising capital is when I sold shares of stock to myself and when I went to the bank to ask for a loan.  Both cases are easy, especially when you can prove how much money your business makes and how much inventory you have.  Now if you want to go off and borrow money by selling shares to other people or selling off a portion of your business in another way, I am not really an expert.  I do know that you typically have to prove a market for your product by having a decent amount of sales or commitments for orders, and you have to be able to present a good business and marketing plan.  This is a good place to start.  I can tell you that if you have proof your business will work, you will be able to find people to invest.

Here are some resources on raising capital that may be useful to you:
