Del blog Learning Optimism, les dejo un post mas que interesante, con 5 tips para conseguir financiamiento para pequeños negocios: emprendimientos o PyMEs. Espero que les resulte util, no dejen de leer el artículo completo donde se explica cada punto.
If you’re thinking about starting your own business or are already in the process of doing it, the question of whether you should raise some money for your venture will inevitably come up. It’s a good question and one you should be asking. I’ve spent a better part of my career being a venture capitalist and investing in small companies. Then I went and launched my own company called Work It, Mom!, which is a community for working moms. I’ve learned a lot about raising money from my experiences and I wanted to share some of it with you. I hope you find this useful and I am always eager to hear your reactions and questions, so please post them in the comments section.

Here are my 5 tips for raising money for your small business:
  1. You don’t need to raise money to start a business and many businesses won’t require you to get outside funding at all.
  2. Focus on generating revenues.
  3. Raise as little money as possible at the beginning.
  4. Carefully consider different sources of capital.
  5. Get a thick skin.
