With the economy still at a low, many Americans have taken their job situation into their owns hands and started a business. According to CNN Money, the startup rate in the United States is at a 15 year high. So this begs the question, where are people finding funding for their startup? While some people are using their own money and savings, and some are taking out small business loans, others have looked to more creative forms of funding. Venture capitalists and angel investors are becoming more common as sources of capital for both startups and existing businesses alike. Typically in exchange for a capital infusion, you give up a percentage of your business or sales proceeds to the investors in this type of arrangement.
