  • Businesses can receive funding from a wide range of investors, including friends, family, and strangers.
  • There is no limit to how much money can be raised through debt-based crowdfunding.
  • Interest payments can be expensive and put a strain on cash flow.
  • The business may not be able to sell equity stakes in the future if it wants to expand or take on new investors.
