Steps for Getting the Capital You Need to Fund Your New Small Business

Steps for Getting the Capital You Need to Fund Your New Small Business
Posted By: Anita Ginsburg on August 09, 2021

Launching a successful small business often depends on the time factor. You can't always wait five or ten years to save enough equity to start a company. Here are some financial resources to consider if you are ready to build your business now.

Downsize Your Budget


Look for ways to cut costs on your monthly budget, and put that money to work in starting your company. If you have two car payments, consider selling one vehicle and ride share with a roommate or coworker. If you are close enough, walk to work or ride a bike. Reduce your entertainment expenses that may include frequent restaurant visits or coffee shop beverages. Shop for the lowest utility fees in your area. Get rid of streaming programming services and download selected free views online.

Get a Second Job


Pick up a part-time job temporarily to save enough money for your startup company. With many employers now offering more remote work opportunities and a higher starting pay, you may be able to save a sizable downpayment for your venture with just a few months' time.



Tutoring, sales, and event planning are just a few of the industries where you might be able to work at home, which can save money on transportation and work-related uniforms or professional outfits.

Sell Unneeded Items


This is a great time to sell that motorcycle you haven't ridden in two years or your daughter's canopy bedroom set in pristine condition now that she has grown up and moved out. Valuable collections of coins, auto parts, or figurines may also fetch a fair price online. Selling used furniture in good condition or renting your garage to a neighbor are more ways to sell tangible and intangible possessions to earn money for your business startup.

Business Loans


You can also look at getting a business loan to acquire the funds you need to launch a company. Check with several financial institutions about the types of business loans they offer. Some may have an application fee while others might not. Interest rates and payment amounts may vary along with the loan terms. Collateral may or may not be required. Find out what you qualify for and the type of payment you can afford by talking to local loan officers.


Don't wait to start your new company. Write a business plan and line up your financing to avoid missing what could be the perfect opportunity to become an entrepreneur.
