- Venture Capital (VC) provides startup capital to companies with high growth potential. The venture capital fund takes equity in the ventures it invests in against the capital provided. Venture Capital finances several stages of business, primarily the seed stage and early-stage startups. DotUP Research helps businesses to understand the process of approaching Venture Capitals and also guides them through the process.
- Angel Investors are usually comprised of high net worth individuals or a group of individuals who provide capital for a business start-up, usually in exchange for convertible debt or equity. Often angel investors organize themselves into angel groups or angel networks to collectively invest in ventures. DotUP Researchprovide comprehensive guidance through the process.
- Private Equity investments are ideally made by a private equity firm, a venture capital firm, or an angel investor. Each of these categories of investors has its own set of goals, preferences, and investment strategies that include providing working capital to a target company to nurture expansion, new product development, or restructuring of the company’s operations, management, or ownership. Private Equity Firms (PE) usually invest in the expansion stage of a business.
- Bootstrapping usually involves starting a business without external help or capital. Such startups fund the development of their company through internal cash flow and are cautious with their expenses. Generally, at the start of a venture, a small amount of money will be set aside for the bootstrapping process. The initial capital is raised from the owner’s funds or raising from friends or family. The working of such a venture is usually on a shoestring budget and involves a different perspective of running such ventures in the initial stages. DotUP Research helps entrepreneurs to streamline their operations to ensure the setup and functioning of the venture can be achieved within the budgeted funds.
- Bank Loans: Banks and financial institutions provide loans for businesses to set up and grow their business. The loans can be secured or unsecured in nature. Most loans are given against collateral and/or a guarantee.

DotUP Research helps businesses through the documentation process to apply for loans.
