Each year, many people decide that they want to start their own business. While the business itself might be different, they have one thing in common: they all need financing to get up and running. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few options you have when it comes to financing your new business. 

Two Ways to Finance 

There are two major umbrellas under which business financing falls: debt and equity. 

Debt is a loan/credit line that gives you the funds you need, but you must repay it within a certain period of time. This is typically secured by some sort of collateral and, if you don’t pay it back within the specified period, the asset can be taken from you. 

Equity is selling part of your business, known as an equity stake. You will not be expected to repay it because the new owner/partner has voting rights, cash flow, and other benefits associated with that equity that he bought. 

Basically, every type of financing is either going to fall under the umbrella of debt, under the umbrella of equity, or in some cases, can be a crossover of sorts. 

Following are 9 Common Business Financing Options: 

Savings 
Credit Cards 
Friends/Family
SBA Microloan Program 
Accion
Angel Investors 
Business Loans/Credit Lines

Purchase order funding
