How to Find Investors for a Small Business

The process of getting your business off the ground often takes years of dedication and effort. Even if you’ve been able to bootstrap a number of aspects of your business, and got to where you are without outside assistance, there could come a time when more funding is needed to expand and expand.

There are a variety of ways to meet investors. You can attempt to connect with potential investors on your own through networking events and even online platforms such as Gust, or you can look for accelerator programs that provide assistance in exchange for seed money.

A few recommendations from successful entrepreneurs can help you locate investors for your small business. Also, if you have any friends who are entrepreneurs themselves, they may be able to connect you with potential investors. Make sure to visit your local business associations–local chambers of commerce and chapters of associations such as the National Federation of Independent Business could be a great starting point to start.

If you do meet with potential investors, be prepared to present your company’s goals and projections. Show how your business has grown and earned a profit so far, and be ready to answer questions about your plans for the future. Also, make sure you have a clearly defined investment structure in place that defines how an investor will recoup their initial investment, and what they’ll be expected perform for the company going forward.
