  • Banks can be a best friend of an entrepreneur.  
  • If you are an entrepreneur or willing to be one then you should know about loans given by the banks.  
  • Usually banks provide two kind of loans to entrepreneurs, one is working capital loan and the second is funding.  
  • A working capital loans is a loan that is taken to finance a company's everyday operations 
  • These loans are not used to buy long-term assets or investments and are instead, used to provide the working capital that covers a company's short-term operational needs. While funding from a bank needs sharing of the business plan and the valuation details etc. 
  • In India, almost every Bank provides SME finance (funding to small and medium-sized enterprises) through various programs. 
  • Bank of Baroda, HDFC, ICICI, Axis bank are some of those examples in India. 

8. NBFCs

10. Some other ways for getting Quick funds for your Business 

If you do not want to rely on others and want to be self-dependent then following some ways may become your favorite to get a push for your startup. 
A. Product Pre-Sale 

  1.  If you have a trusted image among your customers, and through ads, banners, and plans then this method can be proven profitable for you. 
  2. This allowed the customer to buy your product before you. 
  3. This is a highly effective way to raise the money need for financing your business. 
  4. Even unicorns like, Samsung Apple Xiaomi start pre-order their products well ahead of their official launch.  
  5. Through this, you can also estimate the amount of demand you will be facing so that you can manage your supply. 

  • B. Selling assets 
     This is a very risky way, but if you are confident and well prepared for your business idea you can go through this way, and once you make enough profit you can buy back your assets. 


C. Credit cards 

  1.  Business credit cards are one of the easiest and fastest way to get money for your startup. 
  2. But it may be effective only if your scale of business is medium or small. 
  3. After getting funds from the credit card you can pay it back in minimum payment. 
  4. But you have to maintain your debts since carrying a huge debt is not a good image of a business owner's in front of the investors.
