Entrepreneurs Creating Startups

Startups are typically classified as businesses that are less than one year old. These businesses tend to have few employees – in fact, most startups only have one to four employees at the most. Their capital needs, however, are numerous. These entrepreneurs need access to funds to buy necessary assets, start production, acquire the right licensing, and so. However, they may not have many business assets available for collateral or a track record of successful businesses behind them, which can make appealing to traditional lenders more challenging.

If you run a business like this, you may prefer to stay local. Or maybe you want to spend a few years developing the perfect lineup of products before going big. Whatever the reason, these businesses may also need cash for their own projects, from holding a community event to polishing up a new website.

Owners Who Run a Seasonal or Flexible Company

If you run a season business, you know exactly what we're talking about. Whether you sell winter sports gear or get most of your revenue from outdoor events, certain times of the year are simply going to be slower than others. Talented business owners know how to switch inventory and balance things out, but it isn't always enough. If you are feeling the weight of your overhead during an off-season or a particularly slow part of the year, it's time to consider new sources of capital. Owners like aren't interested in a lump sum or big payout – they just want funding to make it through a dry period to the next oasis.
