Financial Barriers to Entrepreneurship: Funding your Business

If you’re a budding entrepreneur looking to overcome the financial barriers that stand in the way of starting your dream business, this blog post is for you!


Loans are one of the first types of funding small business owners will think of. While it is a viable option, it’s important to know what you’re signing up for.


Investor funding is another viable option, but it might come later in your journey as an entrepreneur.


Donations are a good starting point for new businesses. These donations may come from family and friends who are looking to give you a boost. But they can also come from the public.


This brings us to grants, our specialty! Grants are non-dilutive, meaning there is no exchange of equity. They’re also not borrowed funding, so you don’t have to worry about paying them back! Pretty awesome, right?



Matched. Financed. Funded. 💸 Pocketed unlocks grant funding for start-ups!
