Funding Resources for Your Journey

Regardless where you are on your startup journey, no matter the idea or innovation, you need capital to fund your operation to bring it to life. 

In those early stages of one's journey, i.e., exploration and validation, entrepreneurs typically fund this stage of development on their own. They reach out to friends and family, and seek out funding competitions. Moreover, to validate your proof of concept, companies can apply for SBIR or STTR funding, which enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization. 

In the later stages of funding, i.e., launch and growth phases, entrepreneurs usually are more capital intensive, looking for private funding through venture capital investors and other vehicles. Depending on the market and company fundamental, a public offering of stock is another avenue to fund growth.
