Okay, business ladies - let's talk entrepreneurship and business funding. First of all, owning your own business is such a wild ride. There are so many different parts of your business you need to keep up with. While this is fulfilling, it can also be overwhelming! 

Let’s be honest, when it comes to funding, there are SO many ways to get the money you need to start or grow your business. This blog is all about breaking down what business funding is, why it's so important, and how it's definitely within reach for women who are running their businesses and breaking through glass ceilings!

What is Business Funding?

Business funding refers to the financial resources that businesses access to start up, maintain, or expand their operations. It can come in different forms, such as loans, investments, or crowdfunding. Each funding type has its own unique benefits and requirements, making it easy to find the right fit for your needs. Let’s talk through what that looks like:

Business Loans: Obtained from banks or financial institutions, loans are common funding resources. They need to be repaid with interest but provide quick access to the money you need.

Business Credit: Business credit is a flexible way to cover expenses, helping you manage cash flow and build a solid credit history for your business.

Venture Capital Funding: This includes venture capital or angel investments, where investors provide funds in exchange for equity or a stake in the business. Example: The popular TV show, Shark Tank.

Crowdfunding: This involves raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via online platforms.

Who Needs Business Funding?

Business funding is not just for established businesses! In fact, it’s particularly important for:

Startup Entrepreneurs: Those who have a business idea but lack the funds to get it started. 

Small Business Owners: Existing small businesses need funds to expand, hire new employees, or enter new markets.

Women Entrepreneurs: Female business owners tend to face many unique challenges when it comes to accessing the funds they need for their businesses, which is why targeted funding is so important.

A woman in business - regardless of the business model, be it brick-and-mortar retail shops, marketing agencies, food trucks, service providers, boutiques, health and wellness, or coaches, could benefit greatly from having access to funding. 

Think about it for a second… if you are a woman in business, what do YOU need for a successful business? 

  • Do you have a dream of turning your passion into a full-time income? 
  • What is your business vision? 
  • Do you need to hire a coach or an expert to help make your brand shine? 
  • What about running ads, or tools to help you run your business more efficiently? 

Okay now close your eyes and imagine that you have ALL the funding you need to answer the above questions… the possibilities are endless!

Why Female Entrepreneurs Should Consider Business Funding

For women in the business world, who face challenges like limited resources and connections, getting funding is a real game changer. It gives women entrepreneurs what they need to expand their business, enter new markets, and keep up with the latest tech. But it’s not just about getting the funding… you have to have a mission for your money!

Access to funding is key to building generational wealth, and making a lasting impact for the future of your legacy! 

For women looking to make a mark in the business world, finding the right funding isn't just helpful; it's an important step toward writing YOUR money story!  

How to Access Business Funding

Accessing business funding requires preparation and strategy. Let’s talk about it:

Position Your Credit Profile Strategically: Your credit score is only the surface metric of credibility when it comes to acquiring funding. It’s inclusive of other factors, such as your debt-to-income ratio, utilization percentage, credit limits and much, much more.

Develop a Solid Business Structure: This is crucial in convincing lenders or investors that your business can and will succeed. For example, consider founding an LLC in a non-restricted industry, have a bonafide website, registered business address, etc.

Research Funding Options: Understand the different types of funding available and which suits your business best. Make sure you’re considering things like the purpose for the funding, the maturity of your business and repayment terms.
