Obtaining the funds needed to launch and grow a new business can be challenging for entrepreneurs in California and around the country. Traditional lenders are often reluctant to provide credit to commercial ventures that have yet to establish a secure market position, but other sources of cash could be available to the owners of fledgling business. Accelerators and incubators may provide much-needed capital when banks are unwilling to lend, and both of these options provide guidance and advice as well as funding.
