Laura asks…

Has anyone used Fundraiser 1.0? Other options to fund small business?

I want to open a small boutique in TN, that fills a niche that is currently void in our town. I will have moderate/better fashion acc., gift items, and contemporary home decor. I have 20 years exp. in ladies’ retail – management & purchasing. I need help with start-up funding. I can’t obtain a loan through regular channels due to credit issues I was left saddled with after a divorce. Can find no grant that funds start-up for a small retail business. I saw Fundraiser 1.0 on a website, but am not sure how it works. I do not yet have a website for my company, is that needed for Fundraiser 1.0? Has anyone had success with it, and if so, can you tell me how it works? OR, do you have contacts for angel investors or grants? I need $15K, will be located in an established gallery, only overhead being minimal rent, inventory, taxes, & marketing. Gallery furnishes all else, even paid salespeople. I will be free to concentrate on growing the business by starting in this location.
