Funding for Startups: 12 Best Options for Raising Money

  • 6 min read

It takes money to turn a great idea into a great product, but “money doesn’t grow on trees” and you may not have thousands of dollars just waiting to be spent.  So how do you turn your dream into a reality?  Here are some of the best options.  

Self-Funding / Bootstrapping

Many entrepreneurs start with some level of self-funding (also known as bootstrapping) and, in fact, future investors likely will want to see that you have some “skin in the game”.  Even if you can only put in a little money, it is worth considering the benefits. For example, you don't have to worry about keeping investors happy. You also can keep more profits to yourself.  Many founders also hold off on taking a salary, consider tapping into the 401(k) retirement account, and/or have a side job to help make ends meet while they get their business up and running.

What Is Recapitalization?

Recapitalization (recap) takes place when a company undergoes a restructuring of its financials. When this occurs, debt and equity are re-assessed and re-allotted. The goal, usually, is to improve the company's overall stability or status. It generally occurs with the exchange of one type of financing for another. For example, shares may be exchanged for bonds, and so on.

Recapitalization is the way to organize a corporation's capital structure, including stock ownership and the rights and liabilities connected to each class or genre of stock. For shareholders of a business held together, this type of recapitalization is a nuanced, progressive strategy.

JOBS Act

  • 5 min read

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act, is a law signed into effect by President Obama in 2012, designed to promote the growth of jobs in small businesses.

Why Is the JOBS Act Important?

The JOBS Act has seven sections overall, but three key sections are pertinent to investors.

  • Title II allows public advertisements of securities offerings to accredited investors.

  • Title III opens the door to equity crowdfunding directed at the general public and gives non-accredited investors more opportunities to invest in startups.
