Raise money through crowdfunding
Small businesses no longer have to rely on traditional sources of finance, such as banks. A new breed of websites has sprung up offering finance to companies by harnessing the power of the crowd.
Some sites offer cash in return for a stake in your business; others provide debt. All of them work by putting companies that want to raise money in touch with individual investors looking for a better return on their savings.
Small Business Finance’s easy-to-read guide to crowdfunding provides facts and figures on the main players, tips from the people who run the websites, and practical advice from businesses that have been successful in securing finance.
The guide is available to download in digital format or as an app (recommended for iPhone and iPad).
