Financing Stuff

There are hundreds of ways to fund your startup.  New options come up every month which makes it very exciting for the entrepreneur.  This page is here to give you information on some of the newer and more obscure ways that founders are funding their businesses.

Kickstarter

From Kickstarter’s website…

Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.

We’re a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of people like you. Since our launch in 2009, more than 3.9 million people have pledged over $594 million, funding more than 40,000 creative projects. Thousands of creative projects are raising funds on Kickstarter right now.

Upstart

From Upstart’s website…

Upstart allows you to raise capital in exchange for a small portion of your future income. It’s a new and very different service, but it’s not for everybody. By becoming an upstart, you are telling the world and your backers that you want to build a compelling and worthwhile career. And you’re committed to repaying the backers who have taken a chance on you.

Angel List

AngelList is a listing of companies that are looking for funding.  Similar to KickStarter, each company creates a page and accredited investors who are Angels can search the listings to find companies that they are interested in.
