Debt Financing, Equity Financing, and Alternative Financing
Business financing is the act of providing money for business activities, startups, expansion, purchases or investments. There are three basic types of business financing: debt financing, equity financing, and alternative financing.
Debt financing (borrowing funds such as business loans, credit cards, and credit lines) and equity financing (selling a portion of ownership interests in exchange for capital) are the two traditional types of business financing.
Alternative business financing can take many different forms, including the financing alternatives we offer through our partners: invoice factoring for all types of industries. Other types of alternative business financing include options such as equipment financing, retail merchant cash advances, peer-funding, kickstart funding, angel investing, and crowdfunding.
