Entrepreneurs often need money to grow their business, acquire a new business, or launch a unique business venture. Taking out a loan usually leaves you, the owner, in complete control of your company and is quicker than seeking equity capital. Securing equity capital means taking on investors and being accountable to the investors, but does not require you to make regular monthly payments. Investors expect you to make a profit in 3 to 7 years and provide them with a return on their investment.
