Size and Types of Loans
Almost all small businesses are eligible to apply for an SBA guaranteed loan.

The SBA can guarantee as much as 85% on loans up to $150,000 and 75% on loans over $150,000.
SBA Guaranteed Loans
The SBA Guaranteed Loan Program

Approximately 50% of the 9,000 banks in the U.S. participate in the SBA Guaranteed Loan Program.

The loans are for small businesses that are not able to obtain credit elsewhere.

Initial Public Offering
An initial public offering (IPO) is a company’s first sale of stock to the public. When a company goes public, its stock is traded on one of the major stock exchanges.

Typically, a firm is not able to go public until it has demonstrated that it is viable and has a bright future.

Anyone who owns your stock
owns a piece of your business.

Venture Capital (continued)

Venture capitalists invest money in start-ups in “stages,” meaning that not all the money that is invested is disbursed at the same time.

Some venture capitalists also specialize in certain “stages” of funding.
Venture Capital
Venture Capital
Is money that is invested by
venture-capital firms
in start-ups and small businesses with exceptional growth potential.

Venture-capital firms are limited partnerships of money managers who raise money in “funds” to invest in start-ups and growing firms.

The funds, or pool of money, are raised from wealthy individuals, pension plans, university endowments, foreign investors, and similar sources.

A typical fund is $75 million to $200 million and invests in 20 to 30 companies over a three- to five-year period.

Venture Capital
Are individuals who invest their
personal capital directly in start-ups.

The prototypical business angel is about 50 years old, has high income and wealth, is well educated, has succeeded as an entrepreneur, and is interested in the startup process.

The number of angel investors in the U.S. has increased dramatically over the past decade.

Equity Funding

Bootstrapping is finding ways to avoid the need for external financing or funding through creativity, ingenuity, thriftiness, cost-cutting, or any means necessary.

Many entrepreneurs bootstrap out of necessity.

Sources of Personal Financing


Commercial banks are no longer viewed as a practical source of financing for start-up firms.

Banks are risk adverse, and financing start-ups is a risky business.

Commercial Banks
Personal Funds
The vast majority of founders contribute personal funds, along with sweat equity, to their ventures.
Sweat equity represents the value of the time and effort that a founder puts into a new venture.

Friends and Family
Friends and family are the second source of funds for many new ventures.
