Alternative Capital Sources
Crowdfunding is an excellent means to capitalize a fledgling business enterprise, an artistic endeavor, a new application, a unique service, as well as charitable and humanitarian efforts which benefit society. Either during the course of your crowdfunding “raise” or after your financial goals have been met (once you’ve had an opportunity to put away the noisemakers and party hats, and the last of the cake is gone), you might be very well-benefitted by have CFI be your advocate to direct and assist you to obtaining some capital from any one (or more) of a variety of sources. This capital comes in all sizes and shapes (sometimes involving equity or debt, sometimes neither!), but notwithstanding, every single one of them is utilized in taking your project further faster. As you become a going concern, you’ll need money to build your organization, to fill orders, to obtain equipment, to bring on additional employees, and these alternative sources might be an ongoing source of growth capital for you. These sources, if approached properly and dealt with honestly can and will accelerate your growth.
If you are a better-established enterprise, you might not be interested in utilizing the crowdfunding platform (don’t worry -- we can still be friends...), especially if your company or organization is already well into production mode, requires a very substantial sum of capital or if you’ll need an ongoing, dependable non-bank source of funding for operations as well as growth. In that case, we at CFI would ask you to consider having a conversation with us about alternative sources of financing for your operations and growth, or for the financing of large projects, acquisitions, and so forth. We just might be able to walk you into just the right source to facilitate your needs. We can do it quickly, quietly (with the utmost confidentiality) and without the need for trial and error. Talk to CFI -- we’ll get it done for you, and we’ll get it done right.
