How To Finance Your Business

More than 60% of SMEs are unserved or underserved by the current financial ecosystem. Businesses can access finance through "equity financing" or "debt financing“. Equity financing means you give a share of your company for money. Debt financing means that you will pay back the money with a predefined interest amount.
Apart from bank loans, one can raise funds from various other viable sources such as friends, family, private lenders, individual investors, angel investors, NBFCs, PE firms and other companies seeking to make strategic investments.
SMERGERS helps you to connect with the right investors who can fuel business growth.
