Permanent capital sometimes comes from sources other than the business
owner/manager. Considered ownership contributions, they are different from
“stockholders equity” in the traditional sense of the phrase. Small
Business Investment Companies (SBIC’s) licensed and financed by the Small
Business Administration are authorized to provide venture capital to small
business concerns. This capital may be in the form of secured and/or
unsecured loans or debt securities represented by common and preferred
Venture capital, another source of equity capital, is extremely difficult
to define; however, it is high risk capital offered with the principal
objective of earning capital gains for the investor. While venture
capitalists are usually prepared to wait longer than the average investor
for a profitable return, they usually expect in excess of 15 percent return
on their investment. Often they expect to take an active part in
determining the objectives of the business. These investors may also assist
the small business owner/manager by providing experienced guidance in
marketing, product ideas, and additional financing alternatives as the
business develops. Even though turning to venture capital may create more
bosses, their advice could be as valuable as the money they lend. Be aware,
however, that venture capitalists are looking for businesses with real
potential for growth and for future sales in the millions of dollars.

- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
