Best Business Equity Financing Options & Alternatives – A New World


Equity Business Financing Never Looked So Good


Business Equity Financing Options & Alternatives

Business owners and entrepreneurs seeking business equity financing options and alternatives are facing a brave new world. The November 2020 rule changes enacted by the Securities & Exchange Commission provide both new pain points and incredible opportunities.

The most reliable method of obtaining equity business capital financing in the United States is the public offering (as in an Initial Public Offering – or “IPO”). The probability of a business having their equity financing fully subscribed (i.e.: fully funded and closed) using the IPO approach is about 1 in 1.35. Getting it done is another matter. The average IPO is around $100 million, takes an average of 11 months to get thru the registration process to be ready to launch, and the cost to go thru the registration process averages $3 million.

While less than 3% of American companies are publicly-traded, the fact remains this is the most reliable method of obtaining equity business financing. So what? Right, too expensive, you are too small, etc., etc., so why are we mentioning this? The fact is that IPOs work because they can be broadly advertised. Advertising sells and the most successful product to sell in the world is money. We mention this because now you too can raise up to $75 million in business equity financing doing a form of public offering that doesn’t have to include the extended registration process or cost of registration. The combination of new rule changes makes the Section 4(a)(6) Regulation Crowdfunding and Regulation A registration-exempt offerings your primary tool for raising capital, as the combination of elements you can employ provide overall potential odds of success around 1 in 1.47.

To give you context, the probability of success odds for obtaining a commercial bank loan are around 1 in 7.48, while the odds attending an SBA loan are around 1 in 5.55. Venture capital or angel investor capital financing? 1 in 50. These are all pretty dismal odds and that is why most companies failed in the past to obtain any capital financing and tried to launch their business growth plans using credit cards, bootstraps, passing the hat, sweat and prayers. Most failed. That’s the way it was and it is not the way it necessarily has to be. If you are seeking business .

Support, Documentation & a Systemic Approach to Obtaining Capital Financing

Capital financing for small businesses, medium-sized businesses and commercial real estate developers has been made a whole lot easier and more reliable as to the potential outcome as a result of the SEC rule changes. Regulation A offerings (including Crowdfunding – also referred to as “Regulation CF“, “Reg. CF” or “CF”) and Rule 506(c) offerings provide the issuer with the ability to utilize public advertising (e.g.: radio, TV and social media advertising) to market and sell their securities under strict rules and requirements.

The INVIZEN Business Accelerator focuses on supporting these opportunities by providing a systemic approach grounded in years of underwriting experience and broad securities compliance expertise. More than an incubator and more than the typical accelerator or mentoring program.
