Equity financing is the exchange of money for securities in a business, including ownership interests or shares. Equity financing allows a corporation to receive financing for their business in exchange for shares or other securities. 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 through private placements, including the following items:

  1. Angel Investment.
  2. Crowdfunding.
  3. Initial Public Offerings ("IPO").
  4. Venture Capital ("VC").

Angel investors tend to be individuals who invest in startups in exchange for equity and other securities. 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 for every company. It allows your company to distribute shares to the public usually through 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.
