Raising $50K In 50 Days

Proven Ways To Generate Capital For Your StartUp
  • One of the most important principles about raising capital, at least from my perspective, is to get as far as you can without raising capital. Oftentimes, an entrepreneur will come up with an interesting idea, but really nothing more. He or she will say, I just need $250,000 to get started.
  • That's great if your want to raise such a capital for your business. However, the best advice is before you go out and seek $500,000, which you might be able to raise after nine months of work, you’re probably should focus on incorporating your company, getting your website going, getting your domain name set up, creating business cards, creating a product prototype, and finding your first customers. Yes, that will probably take you a few months to do, but if you raise capital after creating an initial product prototype and finding your initial customers, you'll be able to raise that capital to a much higher valuation than if you're just raising capital off an idea alone.

Here are the first six ways that can help you to raise the capital for your venture:

  • Take the cash out of your wallet and resources first

    Tap into savings, home equity, or retirement accounts. It's risky, but don't expect others to invest in your startup if you haven't put some of your own money in. Knowledgeable investors want to see founders show confidence with cash. They favor entrepreneurs with more than "just" sweat equity in the game.

  • Get the Strategic Partners Early

    There's nothing sweeter than finding a supplier, distributor, or especially a customer who stands to gain so much from your solution that they are willing and able to help foot the bill.

    This is a planning-for-success bonus play. I've seen more examples than I can count of early relationship between startups and strategic partners that turn into something really special that endures for years. There's something very appealing about being part of a local startup's success-especially to corporations and service providers who are right in the startup's own backyard.

  • Bootstrap

    Paying as you go by earning revenue from early adopters and managing every dime like it was a dollar is the most cost-effective way to stretch your company's resources-financial and otherwise. Nothing is scarcer than cash (except maybe sleep) when you're starting out. The more you can bootstrap in the beginning to achieve good market validation, the easier you are going to find your path to raising capital.

  • Pursue non-dilutive capital

    Grants, solicitations, and RFPs may not be a fit for every company, but make sure it's not "yes" before you say "no." Some industries, such as biotech, are especially conducive to federal grants.

    And don't forget to look in your own backyard. More and more cities, regions and states have grant programs or loans for high growth businesses at low-interest rates. The beauty of these sources is that a startup may qualify for large sums of money, which are milestone driven, which is the way you ought to be thinking and operating anyway.

  • Match capital to milestones

    Too much capital is as bad as too little. Matching capital requirements to achievable milestones keeps the company from giving up equity before it's required.

  • Establish a line of credit

    Even if you don't use it, bankers will return your calls once one of their competitors has vetted you.

    There are no silver bullets when it comes to sourcing early-stage funding, but with the right capital strategy and a concentrated emphasis on bootstrapping entrepreneurs can avoid shooting themselves in the foot.
