Why do we invest in business?
A question that many business people ask themselves when they are starting up their business or looking to expand. Businesses provide many means for investors to make a return on their money, so when we invest in our business, the lenders will see a return and in turn we see a boost of business. If you are an investor yourself, then you will find that investing into businesses allows you to be a part of a company of their choice. Is it risky for both parties? Investment is always a risk but it is one worth taking if you have the goals and sights set out well.
