To send condo- lences login to one of th first questions a lender or investor will ask is: at what stage is your business? This will determine which resources are appropriate. Few businesses follow a pre- dictable path and timeline from one stage of life to the next. Some linger for a long time as startups, while others dash directly from startup to rapid growth. Knowing the life cycle of a typical busi- ne'ss can help an entrepreneur know where to find capital to reach the next stage. The seed or startup stage starts with an idea or a prototype for a product or service. At this stage, entrepreneurs either tap friends, family members or other personal contacts for funds, or they seek angel investors, SBIR grants, micro loans or very early stage venture capital. When a company is prepar- ing its product or service for a market launch, it's in the early stage of life. As it begins to pro- duce products and secure custom- ers, the business might need a cash infusion for inventory or equip- ment and is most likely to find it through a bank loan, micro loan, angel investor or venture capital- ist. When the company out- grows its initial goals, it's in the expansion or growt h stage. Banks, SBA lenders and venture capitalists are interested in com- panies like these that are moving into new markets, gaining more market share, introducing new products or services, acquiring new customers and rapidly accel- erating revenues and profitabil- ity. Changes in the economy or .market conditions can cause sales whether to seek another opportu- nity or find ways to salvage the business. Possible funders at this point include suppliers, custom- ers, co-owners or partners. At the exit stage, an owner is either selling or shutting down a business. Accountants and finan- cial advisers can help decide the best exit strategy, but common ways to raise money at this stage are through management buybacks, Employee Stock Own- ership ldlans or Initial Public Of- ferings. Capital at any stage Satisfying a business's appe- tite for capital requires knowing which kinds of investors to ap- proach at each stage. Funding sources have their own guidelines for when to help and how much to give -- a company that's hungry for capi- tal. But the first thing all inves- tors want to know is what stage a company has reached and what chance it has to grow and make money. The number of equity fund- ing sources in New Mexico has increased significantly in the past decade. Several companies col- laborate with the New Mexico Small Business Investment Corp. to get capital where it's needed. ACCION New Mexico. The Loan Fund and WESST provide small to mid-sized loans to all types of businesses. Flywheel Ventures, the Kickstart Fund and Verge provide early stage venture capital primarily to technology- based companies; Flywheel also manages the Gap Fund. which typically invests in technology companies just getting on their feet.
