Financing a new small business is usually the most difficult part of starting a business. Trying to find money to start a business often feels more like searching for the Holy Grail.
Although there is no simple solution, Small Business Bootstrapping provides a basic guide through the maze of financing options available-from "normal" business financing sources to alternative and creative sources. Foster's book pays particular attention to the financing model of Bootstrapping, which is available to all aspiring and new entrepreneurs-if you have what it takes.
With this book you will be able to:
- Understand the challenge of financing a small business.
- Make sense of bank, SBA, or other "normal" financing.
- Demystify Venture Capital and Angel investing.
- Learn about Crowdfunding and other "creative" financing.
- Gain an understanding of "real" Bootstrapping.
All of this is from the entrepreneur's point of view-not from the banker's, investor's, or academician's lofty views. This book is one of Foster's Small Business Primer Series, where a "Primer" is defined as any book of elementary principles.
