You might have an easier time trying to locate funding from a bank then you would a private investor.
Be sure to research any investor that responds to this ad before giving away and personal information.
Good luck in your venture, and welcome to the community.
Thank you for your response intechspecial. I haven't applied for a business loan yet. Any sound advice prior to applying for a loan?
Because 600,000 companies a year are founded in the United States alone and many of them seek outside funding, there are many, many web sites that take aim at this lucrative market and purport to introduce entrepreneurs to investors. The sad fact, however, is that while it's very easy for a site to sign up thousands of entrepreneurs (who want the money), it's virtually impossible for them to sign up investors (who have the money.) That's why none of these sites can legitimately point to their track record for getting entrepreneurs funded (despite any claims to the contrary). Instead, they make their money in one of three ways: selling you as a lead to service providers, selling advertising against your page views as you chat with other entrepreneurs, or charging you listing fees and then up-selling and re-selling you when you don't get funded.
I agree with Intechspecial, a business loan from a bank would be the best option
