106 - How to fund your vegan business

9/12/2023
The 5 ways to fund or finance a vegan business. You might think if you just come up with a great idea then an investor will throw money at your business! Well, I'm afraid it doesn't work like that. Investors are out there, even vegan ones who share your ethics, but usually a company will have to either self-fund or borrow money to grow before they get to the level of success needed to attract investment. But don't worry, help is at hand! In this episode, David looks at the five different ways that your business can raise funding, from self-funding and borrowing, to investment and crowdfunding. He also explores some more creative ways you might be able to generate cash to grow - remember that if you need to borrow money then there are other routes than banks!
