How to find a private investor

As a rule, to open a business, you need a lot of money. You can save them, or take a loan from a bank. But what if the money is urgently needed, and the loan is denied? One of the possible options would be to find a private investor.

The issuance of money by a private investor is actually a private lending. However, such a person will not check your credit history and will not require the package of documents that the bank would require (for example, a certificate of income). The loan procedure from a private investor is simple and quick. For the most part, the investor is interested in only one thing – securing a loan. Such collateral acts as collateral.

Do not fall for scammers
At first glance, there is nothing difficult in finding a private investor. This can be done even sitting at home, via the Internet. There are special sites on which individuals who want to give money place their offers, and those who want to receive money place applications.

On the Internet, the risk of running into a fraudster is great
But, unfortunately, when it comes to money, many people are not guided by highly moral principles. Therefore, you can easily be deceived.

To avoid contact with fraudsters, you need to study well the market for private investors. If you still decide to use this site, and you are interested in any investor, you should look for it reviews of those who have already used his services. It may be possible to find electronic contacts of such people and question them in more detail.

Note! You should be extremely careful if you decide to use intermediary services: when an intermediary promises to find a suitable investor for a fee.
We check the reliability of the investor
No matter where you find a private investor, it’s worth checking out. It may take a lot of time, but your risks of being deceived will decrease. Here you can do to make sure the investor is trustworthy:

learn from any possible sources about the previous investment experience of this investor: how many projects were successful, how many failed;
if unsuccessful business projects in which the investor was invested appeared, it is necessary to find out the reasons for such failures;
get feedback on the investor from the leaders of specialized associations, business clubs;
learn the methodology of investor behavior in a difficult situation.
Note! Remember the saying: “free cheese only in a mousetrap”. Therefore, no reliable investor will give you money unless the pledge fully covers this amount.
We are looking for an investor in reality
It is best to avoid those who provide such services through the Internet. But then how to find a private investor? First of all, you need to look for a private investor through friends and acquaintances. First, one of them can be your private investor. Secondly, some of them, perhaps, know a reliable investor and are ready to take you with him.

If, however, through friends, it was not possible to find a private investor, then their habitat may be the following:
business associations;
business clubs, business forums;
investor associations;
investment funds;
specialized conferences, exhibitions.
