Providing Startup Financing Solutions Since 2001

How to Use Entrepreneurial Finance to Launch Your Startup

This site has gained quite a bit of notoriety over the years for two main reasons. One, the Startup Guide based on the financing strategies and tactics of elite entrepreneurs, such as those found on the Inc 500 Lists of Fastest Growing Companies, improves the entrepreneur’s negotiating leverage with investors by showing him or her how to quickly create traction without outside capital. Two, many entrepreneurs as a result decide to pass on investor capital altogether. Why give them equity if you don’t need them?

If you are the type of entrepreneur who places a high priority on preserving as much autonomy as possible, you will have an extra appreciation for this startup financing approach.

How to get startup capital.

There’s nothing magic here. While rookie entrepreneurs expect one bundle of cash to be dropped in their laps that will then solve all their startup problems, the elite entrepreneur understands that the key to financing a new company is in breaking it down into balance sheet components such inventory, fixed assets, equipment, and working capital, and then finding a way to finance each one individually.

If you think that the startup financing problem is being overblown here, take note that it has a name: The Financing Valley of Death.

Even if you are committed to not starting until you have funding from investors, knowing these financing methods will enable you to impress them far more than someone who is oblivious to entrepreneurial finance.

Here are two financing tools to help you get started tomorrow:

    Seeking Seed Capital of $3,599,998

    I am writing you this article to let you know about the new business that I want to start. It is a business in Higher Education. It is very different from the conventional university system, however. It does not offer any classes; only exams. That is why it cannot really be called a university.

    Here is how this business works. Imagine someone is skilled in Mathematics but does not have a degree in it. They can come to our institution, pay us the price for taking our math exams, and if they pass them, we will grant them a “degree” in Mathematics. Now please note that these exams will be administered by professionals in each field. In other words, the math exams mentioned above will be made by college professors. Also note that we include in our degrees the names and signatures of the professors who administered each test. So for the Mathematics applicant we talked about earlier, we will include the names and signatures of the professors who administered each test that the Math applicant took. This way our degrees will be gain credibility.

    Now to sum up the benefits of such a business, here is a list:

    1- My business will reduce the cost of obtaining a “Professional Degree”. Taking the tests will still cost money, but it will be tremendously cheaper than paying for an entire college curriculum.

    2- My business will increase the quality of education. When this business exists, “Educators” won’t have to bother with helping their students to pass their exams. That is because those educators won’t be responsible for administering any exams; we will be responsible for doing that. That way educators will be able to relax and focus on “educating” rather than on testing.

    3- My business will make “Professional Degrees” more credible. When this business exists, professionals who work in this business won’t be able to administer bad or easy exams. That is because if they do so, they will lose credibility and run out of business. That is why they will always make sure their exams are fair and unbiased.

    4- My business will make job recruitment easier. That is because when people start earning credible degrees, there won’t be a need for further examination of their abilities by job recruiters. Job recruiters will simply trust in their degrees. And by doing that, recruiters will save themselves and their customers a lot of time and money.

    That was some of the benefits that such a business can create. As you can see, this business benefits everyone. So if you are interested in it, you can always take part by helping me in creating it. Let me know if you can help in any way possible. I need a lot of money and people to get this started. I will appreciate any help.
