Question by  Katie (92)

What should I do if I need an investor for a new business venture?


Answer by  Heloise (397)

Try friends and family first. If they can't help, try the bank - you'll need a detailed business plan. As a last resort, you could advertise for investors.

Right a detailed business plan. Borrow on your credit, from family members and/or mortgage your home to raise start-up funds. No investor is going to invest in a "new venture" by someone who does not have faith enough in it to use his own money. Investors also look to invest in experience individuals.

It depends upon your capital needs. Assuming that you are looking to start a small business, you should start by leveraging personal contacts. Anyone who is already in the field, or similar field would probably be the best place to start with. You can also look into attending networking events hosted by various networks.

Unless you have a proven record of success in business, you will likely not be able to secure capital. Investors do not make great gambles on unknowns. Best to start with your money as a demonstration of faith in you abilities. Use savings, mortgage the house, etc. If you are willing to invest, others might be later on.

Prepare a business plan that shows what your expectations are about the success of the business, and how the investor will be rewarded for her investment. Dividends? Your repurchasing of the investment? Purchase of the business by a 3rd party, and a share in the proceeds? Preferential treatment in buying goods or services from the business?
