Equity Financing is the exchange of money for ownership in a business. Equity Financing allows a corporation to receive financing for their business in exchange for ownership. The funds received from Equity Financing are unsecured, thus allowing your business the ability to receive additional funds through debt financing. There are numerous equity financing options, including:

  • Angel Investment.
  • Crowdfunding.
  • Initial Public Offerings ("IPO").
  • Venture Capital ("VC").

Angel investors tend to be wealthy individuals that invest in startups in exchange for equity. There is usually higher risk involved for an angel investor making an investment in a new business venture in exchange for a significant amount of equity. VC firms make investments in companies that are not at the point of making an IPO, but in need of equity financing. An IPO is a very expensive process and not needed by every company. It allows your company to sell shares on a stock exchange. On the other hand, Crowdfunding is a way of funding your business through fundraising and donations without any debt on your books, or equity given up.
