Financing the creation and/or expansion of a business is a daunting and confusing prospect for many entrepreneurs. Most of the specialised press gives such a large focus on venture capital that many entrepreneurs don't even know about alternative ways to fund their dreams, let alone which one is the most efficient for their situation.
