Launching a Cosmetics Business (Funding)

Getting funding is not an easy task, however if a person is truly determined and committed and he/she has a well thought out plan built on tested assumptions, a product with some sales, process to delivery , and measurable milestones, chances are with perseverance she will succeed in getting funding.

Let’s remember, studies show that 80% of the Inc. 500 private companies were financed at their start solely by the founders’ personal savings, credit cards, second mortgages, customer advances, extended terms from vendors and a multitude of other bootstrap techniques.
