If you are a business owner or entrepreneur looking to raise capital for your business or idea, the first step is to have a solid business plan and detailed financial plan.. If you are seeking $50,000 to $200,000, bank lending (SBA for an early stage business) and above $200,000 is often private equity financing; though, banks (and the SBA) lends up to $1 million or more. Angel Networks are the preferred route for investments of $200,000 to $2.5 million and venture capital firms are most appropriate for investment of $2 million and up; though, there are a few dozen venture capital firms that focus on investments less than $2 million and a portion of those will invest less than $1 million. Beyond institutional investments are ‘friends and family’, which can often be the way to go for a reasonably sized investment.
