I'd like to start a thread discussing the type of funding different startups are using and why. I think that there are a lot of people here who would like to hear the general experiences, advantages, and pitfalls relating to each. Are you:
- Bootstrapping, either from cash you have, credit cards, bank / SBA-backed loans, etc?
- Funding from friends / family - also - are you financing with debt (convertible or not) or equity?
- Angel funding (seed, initial rounds).
- VC funding (Series A, B, etc).
Also - discuss why you went the route you did.
