New York  Raising capital has just gotten easier! is an online community where entrepreneurs can showcase their business ideas and capital needs (whether a start-up or existing business) to investors. Where else can you sit back and watch the replies roll in without every leaving your home or business? has revolutionized the way to do business and get start-up capital through their simple and easy to use website. Those days of pounding the pavement and making endless calls to bring your business to fruition are over, the name says it all – RaiseCapital,com!
According to the United States Business Administration, in 2005 there were almost 25 million businesses in this country. Roughly 99.9 percent of them were considered small firms, with fewer than 500 employees. There is no doubt about the vast array of businesses that fill each city and town. And there’s no shortage of people looking to start new businesses each year.
Coming up with the idea for a business is usually the easy part. Finding out how to raise capital to get it going is a whole other story. And it seems to be the point that most people get stuck on. The U.S. Small Business Administration reports that inadequate financing is the second most common reason that businesses fail, exceeded only by poor management. So the main thing an entrepreneur needs to know is where to go to find the capital to fund that next great idea. But that has always been the tricky part of the business world. Until now.
“In the past, figuring out how to raise capital was the biggest challenge of getting a business up and running, and for many people it seemed like an impossible feat,” explains Richard Singer, CEO of “Today, people turn to us because we help bridge the gap between the entrepreneur and the investor.” is changing the way that financing a business has always been done. Those seeking funds, whether for new or existing businesses, simply place an ad in the directory using text descriptions, photos and streaming video, then sit back and wait for the replies to roll in. Meanwhile, investors sift through the possibilities, deciding where they’d like to see their money grow. When they find a venture that interests them, they simply make the contact, right through the system. Their technology also allows investors to track all the contacts they have made, search for opportunities by zip code, get industry e-mail alerts and create a watch list. Investors are not charged anything at all to see the opportunities or make any contacts.
“ is a win-win situation for everyone involved,” adds Singer. “For less than the price of a daily latte, entrepreneurs get quality exposure to find the capital they need. Most start-ups or small businesses don’t have a lot of money to spend on letting investors know they exist. makes the whole process a lot less complicated.”
