From New York, Philadelphia, and Boston to Los Angeles and San Francisco, entrepreneurs came out to share their enthusiasm — you really are everywhere.

For eight years, our flagship conference has focused on sharing stories and lessons of putting Lean Startup s entrepreneurial methodology into practice. We ve hosted talks, workshops, and interactive sessions on the challenges and successes of modern management techniques from a wide variety of business leaders around the world. Lean Startup Week (Oct. 30 – Nov. 5 in San Francisco) allows you to experience seven days of interactive innovation training from our experts and true Lean Startup practitioners in a city that s known for being the hotbed of high-growth startups and iconic tech companies (not to mention a great place to eat, drink, sightsee, and shop while you re talking shop).
This year, we re really honing in on the feedback from our past conferences, as well as our smaller, more focused conferences in New York and London this year. What we heard was that you want more opportunities to have your specific challenges answered so to that end, we ve added new sessions where you can ask our experts your questions directly, including Roundtable Discussions and Live Office Hours with Eric for all attendees, along with our regularly popular sessions such as Speed Mentoring , Networking Dinners , and our Women s Breakfast . We re also working very closely with all of our speakers to ensure that the expert knowledge they impart is not only in line with Eric s new book, The Startup Way , but focuses on actionable takeaways.
Here are some of the specific things we want to help you tackle:

Wouldn t you love to have a few million dollars to start your business? Me too! With a great idea and a great business plan, you probably feel almost entitled to get the funding you re seeking.
The reality, though, is that for most entrepreneurs, you must prove your concept first before anyone will put up that kind of money. But most businesses require some sort of initial capital for things like inventory, marketing, physical facilities, incorporation expenses, etc.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), While poor management is cited most frequently as the reason businesses fail, inadequate or ill-timed financing is a close second. Sometimes it comes down to simple cash flow–many companies have closed their doors because they just couldn t make it another few months until the money came in.
When exploring your funding options, there are several factors to consider:
The answers to these questions will help you prioritize the many funding options available.
Because investors take on a much higher risk than lenders, they are typically far more involved in your company. This can be a mixed blessing. They will likely offer advice and connections to help grow your business. But if their plan is to exit your company in 2-3 years with a substantial return on their investment, and your motivation is the long-term sustainable growth of the company, you may find yourself at odds with them as the company grows. Be careful not to give up too much control of your company.
Let s take a closer look at the many options available for startups.
Friends and family are still your best source for both loans and equity deals. They are typically less stringent regarding your credit and their expected return on investment. One caveat: structure the deal with the same legal rigor you would with anyone else or it may create problems down the road when you look for additional financing.
Prepare a business plan and formal documents–you ll both feel better, and it s good practice for later.
Credit cards are a great tool for cash flow management, assuming you use them just for that and not for long-term financing. Keep one or two cards with no balance on it and pay it off every month to give yourself a 30 to 60-day float with no interest. And the low introductory rates on some cards make them some of the cheapest money around. Managed well, they re extremely effective; managed poorly, they re extremely expensive.
Bank loans come in all shapes and sizes, from microloans of a few hundred dollars, typically offered by local community banks, to six-figure loans by major national banks. These are much easier to obtain when backed by assets (home equity or an IRA) or third-party guarantors (e.g., government-sponsored SBA loans or a cosigner).
If you obtain a line of credit rather than a fixed-amount loan, you don t start paying interest until you actually spend the money.
Leasing is the way to go if you need big-ticket items such as equipment, vehicles, or even computers. Your supplier will help you explore this.
Angel investors fill the gap between friends and family and venture capitalists, who now rarely even look at investments below $1 million. Enlist a savvy financial adviser to structure the deal.
Private lending represents a viable alternative when the bank says no . Private lenders are looking for the same information and will conduct similar due diligence as the banks, but they typically specialize in an industry and are more willing to take on higher-risk loans if they see the potential.
There are many channels available to you to raise capital. All of the above approaches have numerous variations. Put together a solid business plan, talk to a financial adviser, and just start asking. Someone will eventually say Yes .
