Creative Capital Raising

So I'm considering raising outside funds for my business(es).

Anyone have any ideas for "creative" financing/lending options?
Anyone have any experiences with this?

Go to banks for loans I guess, probably go to the main one you use first.

If you have any wealthy family, explain to them the strengths of your business, and persuade them into loaning you money or investing in it.

Sling coke.


Never done it, so I don't know what else to tell you. This section is long dead though, I think 90% of the new threads I see in here are just spammers.

Coke would be a nogo unless you meant coca cola and even that market is pretty locked up

I run my own stock equity/foreign exchange business and am always looking for start-up companies to invest in. For real, send me some info. with your business model or a number we can talk at so I can see how your business does. I've seen your guns around on PbNation for awhile so I know you're legitimate. Thanks!

There is a website that specializes in personal loans where you can request money from people based on your credit rating. No idea what its called though :-/

Are you looking for debt or equity financing?
Are you looking for 10k, 100k, 1m, 10m+?
The site mentioned above is lending club.com but its nothing more than a regular loan.

You could do something a bit more complex where payment is based on preformance, ie if we net this then we kick x % back to you.

Just doesn't seem really feasible to generate a decent chunk of cash quickly not to mention I've never really been a fan of those kind of things.

Haven't really decided possibly equity however of course debt would be the other option (I don't find free money often....)

100k-1m-10m+ I could put to use pretty much all of the above, it's at this point more or less what are my options.


Yea there are many options as far as agreements / legalities / terms it's getting the actual hard $ that's the issue.

I think that you actually have a unique funding option available to you. Assuming this is for a used marker trading service you could sell "shares" of your company that gives the holders the right to % of the revenue/profit.

If you makes these available on the cheap, that is so PBN users and other paintballers can buy them, you just created a model that driver customers to use your service more often.

The big challenge here would be quantity, setting up payment, and other logistics related to keep track of a large ownership group.

The biggest thought for investors, outside of family, is can this make me money? You need to have a good pitch with solid historical financials and a growth plan to aide in connecting the dots. Since loans are at historic loans using a homes equity, or just going for unsecured debt from a bank or CU is not too bad of a route. It may be an issue to get get a loan for a LLC that has no assets though.
