whats the best way to fund a business? i want to start a social and environmental enterprise but my crowdfunding campaign still has 0 dollars. maybe its to poorly setup. anyhow if you know of a great way to start a business with 0 interest loans let me know. kiva only offers up to $10,000 the non profit community lender. does anybody know a good business that offers good affordable packages and a quick explanation animated video that summarizes the purpose of the business?

What exactly is it you’re trying to start?
I had my own business doing fencing and farm work and contracted myself out. I began with my two farm dogs and a few tools and as I made money I bought more tools and gear that would allow me to do more varied jobs.
I picked something that was in demand and easy to start at and I also already had the relevant skills.
People won’t invest unless you really know your business and target market well and you can really sell it to them. You need to get people excited if you expect them to part with their hard earned cash.

I read somewhere that nine out of ten businesses fail. So you're likely to fail like everyone else. There is nothing wrong with failing as long as you don't have a loan. Start small and invest by the hundred dollars.
 
Hang a left on main. Then read this tiny ad:
