Where Can I Borrow Money To Start A Business ?

There are many sources of money to start a business. However, realistically borrowing money from traditional sources such as a bank for a small business startup will be based solely on the credit worthiness of the owner of the business. In other words, you will have to sign personally. The SBA and Business Development Center are good places to start inquiring if your credit is good. If your credit is not good, find an angel investor, a friend or family member, to jump start your idea. A CPA quite often can help you find alternative sources of money, traditional and non-traditional.
