Funding challenges

How it affects your business

The traditional ways of financing operations are being squeezed by risk-averse lenders. This makes it hard to control costs, and creates pressure to improve operational efficiencies.

Creativity and open-mindedness are needed when seeking funds. Venture capital and other sources should be considered, along with selling non-core assets and capital market transactions.
