This is a critical step. You've got to find funding for your business but ensure that it's the right kind of funding. Yes, there's the adage, "beggars can't be choosers," but the fact is, you must be selective and smart when seeking money for your startup or it could turn your dream business into a nightmare.
To identify which form of financing is just right for you, think about your long-term personal and business goals and the type of business you're planning to launch.
Money comes in many forms, from tapping credit cards and taking equity out of your home to government grants and high net worth "angel" financing.
We dedicate a whole chapter to this subject in StartupNation: Open for Business to ensure that you understand what we call the "Goldilocks Approach,"a way for you to find the funding that's the right amount at the right time with only the right "strings"attached.
