Title: Not all funding options will have the same risk

Abstract

Monthly economic diversity column for the Tri-City Herald. Excerpt below: When we think about starting or growing a business, it's impossible not to think about money. It's what makes business go round, after all. But does coming up with funding always have to mean you're betting the farm that things will turn out as intended? Generally speaking, raising capital for a business venture does indeed carry some risk, but not all types of funding are created equally. Dilutive funds, for example, typically cost more and carry higher risk than their non-dilutive counterparts. And although both have their place, it's important to know the difference and when one is more appropriate than another.
