Whether you are just starting out with your new company, or you have been in the business for years, raising
capital is always tricky. Even if your business is doing very well, your profits might be needed to pay off loans
and debts. Or you might even need it to cover overheads and salaries. So when you need an extra injection of
capital to push your business forward, it might seem like there’s no chance. Don’t despair, though. Here are five

There are many online loan companies who specialize in loans for small businesses. Most of these accept online
applications, making it easier than ever before to get the cash you need. If you go to your bank for a loan, it
can take them weeks to accept your application and then transfer you the money. However, with an online company,
the money can be in your bank account within a matter of hours.
Crowdfunding is one of the latest trends taking over the business world. The theory
behind crowdfunding is simple. You are relying on individual investments from potential customers. It is a great
way to fund a new startup business or an exciting new project. You sign up to a crowdfunding website and create

hand over their cash to you. If you get all the money you need in the set time, then those who invested will
receive their incentives, and you can use the money for your project!

negotiate repayments on a case by case basis. This will really help you out through your company’s dry patches.
So when you are starting to feel the purse strings tighten around your business’s budget, don’t get too stressed
out. There are plenty of ways to increase your capital. These are just four out of many! It is also a good idea to
have a chat with your accountant and see what he or she advises.
