Hungry Entrepreneurs Always Seem To Find Capital

Hungry Entrepreneurs Always Seem To Find Capital | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Every startup needs access to capital, whether for funding product development, for initial rollout efforts, acquiring inventory, or paying that first employee. Most entrepreneurs think first of bank loans as the primary source of money, only to find out that banks are really the least likely benefactors for startups. Thus “creative” really means maximizing non-bank financing. While sizing up the alternatives, I couldn’t help but pick up a recent book by Karlene Sinclair-Robinson with the creative title of “Spank the Bank: The Guide to Alternative Business Financing.” She plumbs the range of possibilities she has gained through personal experience as…

Amar Bhat's curator insight, June 2, 2014 11:03 AM

This scenario was described very well some years back by Clayton Christensen in his book "The Innovator's Dilemma".  Its well-founded that large companies get trapped by the need to generate incremental improvements in their product line because of their previous investments. That leaves an opportunity for an upstart/startup to come in with a disruptive technology and take away significant market share.
