Successful entrepreneurs study every conceivable source of capital--even the seemingly boring stuff like factoring. They then creatively cobble together a diverse mixture of financing techniques to kick-start their venture. Oftentimes this strategy calls for molding the business model to fit the financing available rather than trying to fit the financing to the model. This calls for genuine flexibility on the part of the entrepreneur. However, it's far better to make progress by adapting to what's available then to stubbornly wait for something that is not and may never be.

Many of the most successful entrepreneurs have demonstrated this flexibility early on in order to achieve traction. Jeff Bezos, Michael Dell, and Henry Ford are just a few of the many entrepreneurs who adapted their business model to utilize cash floats when investor capital was unavailable or undesirable. Cash floats are a sophisticated method of creating startup financing "out of thin air". They utilize many different funding techniques to marshall the necessary startup financing.

While the unsuccessful rookie grows more exasperated by the day at not being funded by an angel or venture capital investor, the successful entrepreneur is leaving him in the dust by using a cash float financing strategy.

Study cash floats and its elements. In most cases, it will be the only way that you can launch your company.

Topics:

1. Cash Floats What do many of the successful companies of the past one hundred years and most of the successful companies of the past decade all have in common? The answer is that they utilized cash floats as a substitute for investor capital to get started. Entrepreneurs from Henry Ford to Jeff Bezos of Amazon to Michael Dell of Dell Computers all used cash floats to launch their companies in the early days.

2. Credit Card Factoring Small Businesses that accept credit cards from their customers may have another source of funding available to them.

When you accept a credit card, you also pay a fee to the credit card company/bank. In exchange for getting the money wired immediately into your account, you have "sold" your invoice to that credit card company for a discount. Article
