Business owners have a variety of financing options to grow their company. The trick to financing companies is knowing when to tap the appropriate source, and how to do it. We can help! It's not rocket science, but there is a bit of work involved.
A lender or investor will want to see a history of company financial statements and the proposed use of funds. You need to have a specific dollar amount of loan or investment in mind. For investors, you'll also need to understand the value of your company. Many accountants will offer valuation services, but be aware that this probably isn't their specialty, and investors have their own methods. Investment bankers can perform valuations and help represent you in the negotiation with investors.
