edited April 2007 in Growth Funding
We have been in business for 5 years and to this point have used bootstrap funding and really need funding to push our company forward. Our products are loved by consumers we just need to be able to expose our products to more consumers. We really need angle funding. How do we go about getting angle funding?

    The very first step in developing a capital strategy is to determine how much capital you need. You don`t need an exact figure yet - but a range ($25,000/$50,000/ $200,000/one million)
    Angel investment is but one option -depending upon many factors.

    Second part of capital strategy is developing a very good understanding of why you need the capital. I get the feeling you would like to spend some money on promotion. Sometimes a "need" for capital is actually a symptom of a different need or an entirely unrelated problem.
    Working capital increases your liquidity and debt. Or it dilutes your ownership. Liquidity is rarely the problem with respect to growth unless you are already growing and need cash to do so. If you`re not growing, then additional liquidity might not have the effect you expect. Liquidity cannot generate demand. Advertising cannot generate demand.
    Can you provide more background information?

    Actually - the SCOR (Small Corporate Offering Registration) is but one option for acquiring capital. It allows you to raise $1 million using a "simplified" registration process. Since the per share price must be at least $5 - it`s not often used by small early stage companies.

    Our products are very unique the only products like these throughout the world. They are an every day use product. They have changed the cooking and eating habits of alot of people. Because we are so unique the average consumer is not even aware we are out there and most buyers won`t touch us because they have to work to expose the products to the consumer. Buyers that have taken us on and stores that have promoted us could not keep the product on the shelves. We are in a growth stag with limited capital, the growth is slow, we can continue on this way and grow slowly or we could grow quickly with addtional capital. We know just what capital we need and where to spend it effectively. We can get loans but don`t care to have additional expenses and risk the company.

    "Our products are very unique the only products like these throughout the world." Even if this is true ... and it`s not ... this kind of thinking is dangerous for any business. Your category is very crowded if you consider direct competition and hypercrowded if you consider indirect competition from things like dried seasoning packets and even salad dressing. You might have a fairly exclusive product but it`s not original. Your product is very appealing however and you are definitely right to consider effective promotion. Who distributes your product right now? Here is an interesting discussion on distributors.
