Hello Searchfunder Community, 

I am helping with the evaluation of a business that would be a distributor for some very specialized hardware and electronics focused on the entertainment industry.  The opportunity is interesting in that there are currently no distributors in the U.S. and the market has grown and will continue to grow substantially.    

One of the questions we are struggling with is how a distribution business gets it's initial capital to purchase inventory.  What are the funding options, outside of self-funding, family, and friends? 

Thanks in advance!
