In my Truth About Funding fundraising training program, I go through the 41 proven funding sources for entrepreneurs so you can choose the ones that are a fit for your company. In this week’s tips, I’ll tell you about some of these options.
Over time, you will pay a lot of money to your business’ landlord. And, oftentimes you will have to pay a lot of money to contractors to build out your office or storefront to your specifications.
As much as possible, you should ask your landlord to finance these expenses. To begin, the landlord should finance as much of the build-out as possible. In addition, you can often negotiate up to 6 to 12 months of free rent on a 5 to 7 year lease.
Finally, it is often a good idea to make your landlord an equity holder in your business (and ideally they pay for this equity). If a situation arises when you are unable to pay rent, the equity-holding landlord will generally be much more lenient.
