Small Business Bootstrapping: And Other Alternative Ways to Finance Your Small Business
Are You Having Trouble Finding Financing For Your Small Business?
All Small Businesses Can Be Financed … This Book Tells You How
For many entrepreneurs, financing their small business seems like an impossible task. The truth is—obtaining money to start and operate a business is often the most difficult part of being a small business owner.
Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules about financing our businesses—we are left to fend for ourselves … and that’s why I wrote this book.
Small Business Bootstrapping is one of my Primer Series books. This series is directed exclusively to the new, or aspiring, small business owner who is interested in how to obtain capital in order to start, or better run, their business.
So, if you’re business is running, but needs additional operating capital … or your new startup is all ready to go and you’re just waiting for financing, you may want to look at this book at Amazon right away. Just click on the arrow button below:
Or, Are You Still In The Planning Stage and Wondering Where the Money Will Come From to Start Up?
One of the main parts of planning a startup is identifying where the money will come from to start the business. That is why it is important to start your search for start-up money while in your planning stage.
Small Business Bootstrapping covers much more than just “Bootstrapping.” It includes many forms of alternative business financing that businesses are using today—plus a few financing resources that not many new entrepreneurs are familiar with.
For many of us, “real” Bootstrapping is the last resort to financing our business. But, is “Bootstrapping” just another term for “organic growth”—or is it much more than that? This book will discuss this issue in depth, and it even includes a case history of “real” bootstrapping so you can follow the process step-by-step.
Do You Have Some of These Typical Questions?
- Can I get a bank loan to start my business?
- How do I get an SBA loan?
- How do I find an Angel Investor?
- Is Venture Capital a good fit for my business?
- Is Crowdfunding the right avenue for financing my business?
- What is Peer-to-peer lending?
- Can I get into a Business Incubator?
- What is meant by “owner financing”?
- Just what is Bootstrapping anyway?
I have created Small Business Bootstrapping—one of my Small Business Primer Series—to answer these questions, and many more, for the very new (and about-to-become) business owner.
My name is Bob Foster and my background is unusually eclectic in that it includes working with the smallest of small businesses as well as Fortune 100 companies. I’ve worked in industries from the high-tech world of the “Silicon Forest,” to the commercial fishing grounds of Alaska and Mexico.
I’ve started businesses and sold businesses, so I have felt the excitement of success as well as the sting of failure.
Like most new business entrepreneurs, I have experienced the difficulty of acquiring financing to start, operate and grow a small business. I have experienced the frustrations, and that is why I wrote Small Business Bootstrapping—so that new and aspiring business owners can get a head start on rounding up the money they need to start and run their business.
