What Is The 'Hierarchy of Funding'?

If your business needs to buy equipment or to hire employees, chances are you require Funding. The Hierarchy of Funding describes various methods of obtaining funding for a business.

In order to acquire Funding, it's often necessary to give up a certain amount of control over the operations. No one gives money away for nothing. The more money you ask for, the more control they'll want.

The higher you climb, the more funding you get and the more control you give up:

The more control you have to give up, the less attractive the funding. More opinions means slower operations.

It's not uncommon for investors to remove executives that are not performing well, even if they are the founder of the company. (e.g.: Steve Jobs)
