The term “love money” refers to the money you can borrow or take from your loved ones, be it spouse, parents, family etc. Keep in mind that your loved ones may not have huge amounts of assets that they can provide you with. Also remember that when they fund your start-up, they might expect an equal share of the business as partners. Just because you are close with the investor doesn’t mean that you should take the partnership lightly but always be fair.

3. THE BIG BOYS

The sub heading “The big boys” is referred as big industrialized companies that are well known in the markets. Big companies such as Amazon have “Amazon Private Label” where they fund third party to manufacture the product. They then sell the manufactured product under their name “Amazon Basics”, this can be a good way to enter the market as well. Big companies can also be used for investments rather than private labels but you’ll have to grant them a share in the company.

4. “ANGELS”

“Angels” are wealthy individuals who are mostly retired gentlemen and women and are looking for a good place to contribute their money. They not only bring finance into your company but also contribute their experience, network of contacts and resources. However, they might expect a seat at the board where they can see and have a say in the management of the company. These “angels” tend to keep a low profile so you might have to look for them online in blogs or through various NGOs.

5. BUSINESS ACCELERATORS

Business accelerators/incubators support early-stage start-up businesses through investment. There are two types of incubators; one who provide support for the business through resources and money. The other type creates job opportunity for the people and helps to train them for the start-up requirements. Business accelerators share their company premises with you and allow you to conduct research in their labs. They part ways when you finalize your product.

Subsidy is a payment or other form of economic support that are given by the government to help certain companies or industries. Before applying for a subsidy, you should look at the criteria according to your state/province as not everyone is eligible.
