Sources of Capital in our region

For many companies, angel capital may not be the right fit - and even if it is, our angel investors can only fund a small portion of the opportunities that come their way.  

However, there are other potential sources of capital worth exploring if you are launching a new business or growing an existing one in the region.  Here are a few suggestions to get started: 


Advisers and Guides

  • For help in both finding and preparing for startup capital, the SBDC, your local chapter of SCORE, or VentureAsheville's resources directory should be your first ports of call


  • We get a lot of requests from people with "an idea" but no desire or time to build a business around them. We suggest you try a place like Edison Nation to see if someone else will work that idea for you.
