Assignment Instructions
At some point in the life of your business, you will need money. After reviewing the reading assignments in this lesson and conducting additional research, create a comparison matrix of funding options available to you; include options that you think you may never use (you never know about the future so think about all legal ways to get funding). Include the following categories in a matrix:
Name of the funding option
Identify the option as debt or equity
Maximum amount offered by the funding option
Interest Rates (for debt capital)
Company share (for equity capital)
Terms
Contact information
Notes
At least 2 additional criteria
Next, evaluate the sources for raising money and prioritize your options. What legal issues can arise out of your top three options? What can you do to minimize or eliminate those legal issues?
Your matrix may look like the following sample table. Be sure to include as many elements as possible:
Type of Funding Option
Debt or Equity
Maximum $ Amount
Interest Rate (for debt)
Company share (for equity capital)
