The Types of Business Funding Available to Business Owners [Part 1]

Finding the right funding tool for your business is like any other use of tools for business operations. You might not use a sharpie on a whiteboard, or a glue stick to secure a 10-page presentation. Both tools work for the job, but certainly are not effective. Because of this, we have outlined the funding tools available to businesses and when each is useful.  We have also reviewed some interesting statistics about funding as a women business owner and shared with you two in-depth learning resources to review later.
