If you want to raise capital for your business, there are two forms that capital can take: equity or debt.
Raising equity means incoming investors receive an ownership stake in your business. The capital raised does not have to be repaid on a specific date, and there are no interest repayments.
Raising debt means you do not have to give up an ownership stake in your business. Instead, it must be repaid on a certain date, and regular interest payments must be made.
If you are ready to sell your business there are a number of considerations.
Potential buyers or acquirers can include individuals, funds, competitors, and other companies. The most suitable buyer will depend on your geography, sector, and size.

A fund pools the capital of a group of investors to invest in a certain strategy such as private equity or venture capital. These investors include individuals and institutions.
