Shareholders

Shareholders are people or another organisation that own company stock – and they own your business. They have vested interest in you being successful, since they'll receive dividends. But if the company goes down in value or if income falls, they could lose out. It may bring extra pressure for you to do well, but offering shares could be the perfect funding solution.
