Venture Capital

Companies that cannot seek capital from more traditional sources due to size, assets and stage of development may turn to venture capital. 

Start-Up Financing

Funding provided for product development and initial marketing (which means the company has key management, market research and a business plan in place).

Angel Investors

An angel investor generally wants less control of your company and a slower return on investment, however the criteria for investment are likely to be similar. Angel investor groups are great sources of private capital and frequently invest angel money into new companies.
