Begging, borrowing and bootstrapping
Other businesses start out really small, with minimal money, and build slowly. This is often called bootstrapping.

Even if you’re doing that, it’s worth knowing about the types of finance out there. You may just need an extra injection of cash down the road to get the business truly humming.
