Businesses need capital to finance their commercial activities. Manufacturers need working capital to finance the cost of designing and developing a new product line. Builders need capital to acquire land and finance construction. Startups need funding for development and to prove concept. And in some instances, businesses face irregular events requiring significant funding. Regardless of the industry, business stage, or underlying challenge, the principle remains the same…businesses need capital to survive and grow
