Venture financing is the key to success for new and growing companies. If new companies are like seedlings, then venture financing is like the water, soil and sunlight that those seedlings need to grow. As you can imagine, this beginning phase is a crucial, do-or-die stage for fledgling businesses.

New and growing ventures need capital to survive; without it, they will die. This capital can come from a range of sources. Friends, relatives, commercial lending institutions comprise the most obvious source of venture capital.

Obtaining Venture Financing for Your Company

Other sources of venture capital are individual investors, venture capital firms, and government-backed Small Business Investment Companies (SBICs). Other possibilities are Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and Small Corporate Offering Registrations (SCORs), along with other sources. In other words, there are many possible sources for venture capital.

So how do you get the money? You can do your own research, like some business people do. A smart alternative, though, may be to look into a good business consulting service to help you find these crucial sources of venture financing.
