Easiest ways to raise capital for your startup this 2017
Any entrepreneur will let you know that raising money can be the hardest piece of starting your own business. While the competition for funds slowly builds every day, your odds of securing investors turn out to be fundamentally thin. Obviously, finding an investor isn't unimaginable.

Here are a couple tips to raise capital this 2017

Your money
Tap into savings, home equity, or retirement accounts. It's risky, but don't expect that others will invest in your startup if you haven't put some of your own money in. Educated investors need to see founders show certainty with cash. They support entrepreneurs with more than "simply" sweat equity in the game.

The Crowd Game
An entrepreneur will set up a detailed description of his business on a crowd-funding platform. He will specify the goals, plans for making a profit, how much financing does he require and for what reasons, and so forth and after that consumers can read about the business and give money on the if they like the idea. Those giving money will make online vows with the guarantee of pre-buying the product or giving a donation. Anybody can contribute money toward helping a business that they truly believe in.

The "Co"
An alternative and more effective approach is to find a co-founder who has complementary capabilities in light of the business model you need to implement. In this manner your new venture would be more independent and would require you to hire less individuals right off the bat. If you are starting a technology company, ensure the founding team has solid technical skills. If the consumer space is of interest, make sure you have marketing experience. The core functions of your business should be secured by your founding team

Toward the day's end, equity capital, or venture capital, is the most costly kind of capital you can raise. So just raise what you need and ensure you realize what will you use it for-- before you take it on.
