I have put together a business plan and i am currently hunting down investors. i am looking to raise about 60% in investor equity and finance the other 40% from a bank. my question is, in the operating agreement, how do i divide up as to who owns what. if the investors own 60% and the bank owns the other 40%, what do i own. do i own the 40% debt that is owed back to the bank. i need some help on this issue to clearify exactly what i may own in this circumstance.

It is all based upon what you value the company at. The note from the bank is not ownership based thats why it is a loan they will only loan you money if they think you will have the cash flow to pay the note off. In terms of your investors you have to determine the value of a share of your company and give them 60% of the shares.

Re: Looking for investors to start a business

Be Careful Where You Get It
"The need for capital can cause you to lose control" Henry Ford
If you are looking for an angel to invest in your venture, be cautious. You may be getting more than money as most investment dollars have strings.
No question about it, finding investor money is difficult. Don't be in hurry to run to your bank - they usually say no to start-ups. If they say yes, it will be a loan with a personal guarantee. Why take on insomnia?

Yes, there are "angels" who have money to invest; but most have stringent requirements your new business may not meet. Some "angels" are willing to be silent and play no part in the running of your business; others insist on a management voice. Some are professional management or venture capital companies that specialize in finding start-up companies with a potential that they can orchestrate to a future public stock offering. These firms are selective and reject most inquires.

You may wish to look at the classified ads of "investors" seeking opportunities. My experience with such individuals is that most do not understand the problems of a start-up business. They become impatient and meddlesome. If you place an ad, expect curiosity seekers, opportunists, and sleight of hand artists.

How much money are you talking about?

I've created a new funding option to help the "little" guy that banks and investors won't touch. I've been there. I know the difficulties in obtaining funding for a small start up.

Preneuraholics.com will launch fall of 2009. Stay tuned...

Why don't you consider taking a grant. In that case you don't have to return the money also.

Re: Looking for investors to start a business

Don't waste your time chasing the non-existent grants. Grants are not available for for-profit business startups. You might find a small contest type grant but the competition will be fierce. Many an entrepreneur has wasted valuable time and money looking for free money through grants.

Check out my blog below for more info.
