A partnership might be a great way - provided that it is the right partner - someone who bring just as much as you do to the table. If you pursue this option, make sure you take the time and spend a little money in drafting a great, comprehensive partnership agreement - do this in the beginning as you never know what will happen later.
You also have some financing options - one would be to factor the accounts you are waiting to be paid for. You can get advances for those invoices to have the funds to run and grow your business now. Plus, these companies can help with collections.
You can also factor your future jobs. Many non-bank companies will advance the funds you need to complete jobs - it is called purchase order financing. You can use the funds to purchase inventory, materials, etc as well as hire the labor you need.
Plus, if you have equity in your equipment, you can always sell that equipment for cash to a leasing company - then lease that equipment back on favorable terms. This is just a paper transaction, you would not actually have to give them the equipment. The idea is get the cash you need today and lease your equipment back by making monthly payments, just like making monthly loan payments.
Lastly, there are many unsecured lenders that can lend upwards of $100K + based on your length in business and current income level.
