The How of Business - How to start, run & grow a small business.
Start-up funding for small business owners – how to find and get - with Hall Martin, an entrepreneur and angel investor. Getting the money to fund our small business start-up is often where we hit a wall. We may not qualify for traditional lending, and we may not have the cash to fund the business ourselves. We hear of tech companies and other entrepreneurs who use Angel Investing or Venture Funding, but that is often not accessible for the typical small business owner outside of the tech world. Hall Martin shares his insights and experiences with Angel Investing. How might we leverage Angel Investors to help us fund our start-up? Henry Lopez is a serial entrepreneur, small business coach, and the host of this episode of The How of Business podcast show – dedicated to helping you start, run and grow your small business.
