If you have an interesting plan then you can present it to the venture capitalist, if they are satisfied with your plan and are interested in it then they will provide you with the required finances to start your business in exchange for some equity stake in your business.

4. Look for Angel investors:

Numerous investors such as Angel investors or business angels are present in the market and are ready to provide the required capital to people facing problems in arranging finances to start up a new business. They give the required finances in exchange for some equity share or in the form of convertible debts to the young entrepreneurs.

5. Secure loans:

    I think it really just depends on your personal situation, advance loans can be really useful as long as you have the income to pay it back on time! Other wise steer clear!

    I’m not sure these kind of investments would be a good fit for all young entrepreneurs. Especially those you are working on their first venture. When I first started working online, I knew it was going to be impossible to get a loan, so I saved money from my day job for months before investing in my own business. As a result, I own 100% equity in my company, I am debt-free and I put all the benefits in my own pocket :)
