Small Businesses Advice

Alternate source of funding for startups and early-stage companies
Most startups and very early-stage companies with very little financial history generally find most traditional funding sources – banks – closed to them. Many banks consider a startup anything less than two years old, so if a small business owner needs financing, it usually needs some type of non-traditional funding. One source of funding that is being seen more often are royalties, or revenue-based financing.
