One of the most common questions I get is how to fund a business between the ranges of $200k and $400k.

There aren’t great options here because most banks won’t loan on this amount, an unproven business sometimes, may not be big enough to support you, etc.

Here are a few options though.

1. Save up. This can take awhile.
2. SBA from a local bank. Has to be local.
3. Find an investor on good terms, make it interesting to them.
4. Short term debt (I’M NOT A FAN OF THIS and don’t recommend it)
5. Seller note
6. Find a new sweet spot in terms of price range.
