How to Get Start up Funds for Your New Tech Biz

Every tech entrepreneur has been at the point of a great idea striking, the enthusiasm to execute it fires up and then the harsh realization that you don’t really have the money to make it happen sinks in. The truth is you need capital to follow through with most businesses that you want to pursue.

The good news is that technology is a very lucrative industry that plenty of people want to be a part of. That means that it could be much easier to find the start-up funds to make your dreams come true than you think.

Keep reading to check out these tips on how to come up with the money to get your tech business started.

Consider Crowdfunding

The internet is filled with resources that help ‘techprenuers’ find their start up funds. Websites like Kickstarter and GoFundMe are open sources for getting your project in front of people who might be interested in donating.

You won’t have to give much in return by going the crowdfunding route if you don’t have it. Even offering updates on how your project is going could be good enough for individuals who helped out. This is definitely a low-risk route.

Find Angel Investors

Believe it or not, there are already lots of people with tons of money who are waiting for you to find them. That’s right- angel investors love offering financial support for tech company start up funds.

Depending on the agreement, you may just have to pay back with interest or offer a piece of your company in exchange. Use your discretion to know which is best for you in the long run.

Take out Loans

Loans are pretty traditional and straightforward. You can borrow money from a bank and pay it back with interest. The amount that you’re approved for will be determined by various factors, such as credit score and current income.

Research different types of loans to see which fit you. If you’d prefer not to go through a third party, you may be interested in taking our personal installment loans. In this case, the money is allotted directly to you.

Setup Personal Savings

Most people refer to getting start up funds through your own personal income and savings as ‘bootstrapping’. Plenty of companies have been started this way and have grown their profits exponentially.

It might be a bit difficult at first but with the right budget, financial plan and motivation you can make it happen. This is also a good route to take if you don’t want to go into much debt.

Asking Family & Friends

Having a good support system could really come in handy when you’re trying to start a tech business. Sometimes just asking family and friends to help out could be enough to get your company going.

Borrowing money from your loved ones might feel like a tough conversation you don’t want to have. But there are appropriate ways to ask for the money

 without making it uncomfortable for everyone.
