Capital is an essential component in your ability to seize the opportunities you see for your business. By reducing your personal risk or providing an opportunity to capitalize on what you have built, funding animates your vision and makes it a reality. It's the lifeblood of growth and progress.
There comes a time for an entrepreneur when the scale of the financing needed to take the business to the next level exceeds the scale of personal, family or hometown resources or perhaps his willingness to risk the capital necessary to fund the business opportunity at hand. You refuse to let your business stagnate. You know it hasn't reached its potential yet. Can you capitalize on what you have built, yet still participate in the business growth you just know is out there? How do you raise enough capital? Do you take the risk of over-extending yourself? How can you access additional expertise and know-how? What are your options?
Perhaps you have a unique situation with an opportunity that can scale very rapidly but lack the financing to take off. What do you do?
Or perhaps you are not ready to retire, but want to take something off the table while maintaining a stake in the business going forward while you manage a transition to the next generation of managers. How do you make sure you can find a partner to help you with the enterprise in which you've put so much of your blood, sweat and tears to ensure it will survive and thrive?
Lake Capital can help you answer these questions and capitalize on your opportunities.
