What do you do if you need to raise money for your business? For my business, we were able to raise money through privately offering stock legally in our company. This is something you can do if you are a registered security in the state of your residence.

There is more to it: you will need to issue the stock, invite investors, educate them, have them subscribe, be legally protected, and be able to “legally pool” their money — because pooling money usually is not legal.

If you understand how to carefully structure an investment and do the appropriate disclosures, you can actually get a lot of that done.

That company is or They both have a number of programs that systematically prepare and develop your business to be ready for multiple streams of funding. Both help get you funds anywhere from $15,000 all the way up to $500,000.

What I am seeing in the current marketplace is that it is very difficult for regular individual business owners who are busy to go apply for loans. It is not very easy. The chances of being turned down are very high.

The thing I liked about Funding Universe is that they actually take your business through a review process and show you the weaknesses that you have on your business credit that are seen as derogatory in the eyes of the banks that you are applying to. They will help you improve your business credit score and get you to a point where you are applying with multiple banks, getting the money that you need to grow appropriately and responsibly.
