Can anyone direct me or know any Investors/Lenders? Any suggestions? Currently in a middle of a business project and needing more capital to finish it and to fully get it up and running. SBA and traditional loans does not seem to not work. Perhaps Venture Capitalist? Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you fellow fastlaners!

Can you be more specific?

Why won't traditional financing avenues work?

Where is the business in its development stage? Do you have a product? Do you have customers? Do you have revenue?

What exactly do you need the money for? What are you offering in return? What are your qualifications that would lead someone to believe you will be successful at returning the investment?

It's unlikely you want a VC at this stage (or any stage). I would focus on methods of bootstrapping the business without cash -- or at least generating customer commitments before you start spending other people's money. If you tell us more about your project, maybe we can help?
