Reinvested profits are perfect. The best source of “venture capital” for an existing business is money your company is already generating. Many entrepreneurs miss growth opportunities by spending profits in unproductive ways. Others take the opposite extreme, pumping every penny into the business while taking nothing for themselves. Both can backfire.
Many business owners tend to wait until the last minute before going after sources for finding credit that they need right away. The problem with this is that by time they are approved for their credit it can be too late for their businesses needs to be met. Business.com suggests lining up your sources for credit early on, plan ahead by speaking with companies regarding your business and where you expect it’s future to go. Basically do all of the leg work and buttering up that you can as early on as possible.
Another thing to think about in terms of funding for your business is by having more then one bank account with major banks. Rather then just having all of your banking done at one place, consider opening up one or two more accounts with other well known bankers, this will give you more than one option to consider in terms of credit later down the road, and it will also provide for more accounts that you can show when getting a loan.
