Raising Capital With Credit Cards

Don't overlook your own resources when funding your business.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

One of the most overlooked avenues of obtaining start-up capital is credit cards. This option used to be used solely as a last resort because most credit cards charged extremely high interest rates, but that is changing. Many credit cards are lowering their interest rates to make this a more viable option. This is a way to get several thousand dollars quickly without dealing with paperwork, as long as you don't exceed your credit limit.
