Share Capital Add to toolbox

Back

This is a source of long-term finance, money invested in a firm by investors, who gain a share of the company ownership as well as a sum/percentage of return on top of the invested amount (ROI). 

Investors like to have more shares in your company as they want more returns from their investment and they want to have a say in the way the company is run, so that they could have a majority vote when it comes to making decisions that help to gain returns quickly. 

However, as an owner you are more focused on providing the best possible product/service that will make your customers happy and loyal, hence why you will want to keep majority ownership, which gives you the most decision making power when it comes to issuing shares in your company.

It is also referred to as Equity Financing  

This section will explain the different Share Capital options available to you as a business owner.

The reason why entrepreneurs like to use this method of financing their startup:

  • Funding is committed to making your business work, investors will only make their money back if the business will make money.
  • No costs like you have interest rate payments with a loan
  • Investors can provide advice and support, as they have a vested interest to make the business do well
  • Investors are prepare to follow-up funding as the business grows
