To start a business you need a significant amount of money. While some people start out with a lot, most don’t. But if the traditional ways of obtaining money don’t appeal to you, there are some creative ways you may never have thought of. Here are some unique ideas that have successfully been used by startup owners. 

Test Products

Being a product tester means you can get paid to try a company’s new item before they release it to the public. In general, the more well-known the company is, the more they are likely to pay well. 

Review Movies

Basic writing skills and an interest in movies may be enough to help you raise some cash. Search for websites that will pay you to submit movie reviews. If you commit to doing this on a long-term basis, you may find yourself having access to new movies before the general public does. 

Angel Investor Loans

If you know someone who has a personal interest in seeing you launch your own business, ask if they want to invest in it via a loan. If you don’t know anyone who is interested, reach out to your local community and seek out influential people who can help turn your dream startup into reality. A dedicated angel investor is more focused on the growth of your business than on becoming wealthy from it.

Garage/Yard Sale

If all else fails, startup owners have been known to hold a garage or yard sale in order to raise money for their business. When you have items of value that you are willing to part with, this can be a great way to cut down on the clutter in your life and leave you with a surplus of money as a result. 

Other Options

There are other creative options you can turn to, such as revenue/royalty sharing, and vendor, or receivable financing. Sometimes receivable financing is the best way to get ahold of money to fund a new business quickly.
