  • Crowdsource funding marketplaces

  • No obligation to return funds or make repayments.
  • You get expertise knowledge of the investors
  • Less stress on the cashflow of the business.


  • The ownership of your company gets diluted.
  • Other alternatives may require repayments and put stress on the cashflow of the business.
  • You may not have the full control of the business.

Debt Funding

Equity funding option may not be possible for all the businesses, or some business owners do not prefer to dilute their stake in the business. In such scenarios, debt funding is the most suitable alternative option to fund your new business. Generally, debt funding can be of two types.

Unsecured Business loans:

If you are a new business that has been trading for at least 6 months, you may be eligible for an unsecured business loan. This is the most suitable option for a new business as you do not need to provide any security against the loan. To be eligible for an unsecured business loan for startup businesses, it should be;

  • Trading for more than 6 months
  • Must be turning over more than $5000 per month.

Secured Business Loans:

In case if your business is just started or haven’t started generating any revenues, you can still get a startup business loan by the way of securing a real estate property against the loan. There is no minimum trading time or turnover criteria to be eligible for a secured business loan. However, to get a secured business loan;

  • You must have an active ABN
  • Must be property backed with sufficient equity.

Factors to consider when selecting the best startup business loan for you

As startup business loans in Australia come in many forms, it might be stressful for you to consider which one might be the best for your startup. Here are a few key components to help you evaluate your options:

If you are just having a startup idea and have not yet taken any actions to develop your business, it might be difficult for you to convince lenders to provide you with an unsecured business loan. The more established your startup is, there will be more options available for you. In this instance, your only available option would be a secured business loan.

Although you may be thinking the more funds the better to give you contingency in the case of unexpected events, it is better to come up with a clear amount of funding that your business needs. With an amount in mind, it would be easier for you to select the best option out of the startup business loans.

Generally, startup business loans are for shorter term so you should be careful with the repayment terms. You need to consider whether a weekly/fortnightly repayment option would be feasible or a capitalised interest or interest only repayment option would be more suitable for your business. Depending on your preference and eligibility, you may choose to go with a secured business loan or an unsecured business loan.
