I have an idea that requires a bit of land (4+ acres) and in a prime area (to be truly successful). Besides the land, I think I could get this started for $250k. The land could possibly cost millions. What options do I have? It's a sporting idea, so could I go to my city gov for grants or to sporting good companies for sponsorship? I think the idea is great, but the capital need for a physical location business could be very large for something not proven

Could it work on an underutilized city park or city lands? One of our soccer clubs rents 10 acres from the city for fields. The downside is that the it’s a year to year lease with no guarantee of renewal so there’s risk that cap imp will be lost.

I like this idea. I think this would be the best way to show if the idea would work and get some traction. I also think I could get it funded (since this would be cheaper and shorter) by sporting goods companies in this industry with sponsorships

Do you have to buy the land? Or could you try a pop up event? Just to get some validation.

The land is the whole idea (what I do with it I mean)

I thought the something sporting was the idea. But maybe your just using that to aquire the land.

I guess I can't be to much help without knowing more. There is often something temporary you could do up front to validate and prove to possible investors/lenders to get better buy in. A smaller step in the process to get to your end goal.

But maybe not if it requires 4 acres.

Banks won’t usually finance vacant land. You should check whether the owner would do owner financing. You’d have to offer a higher interest rate, but if the business doesn’t work out, depending on how you structure the deal, you could just give the land back. The other option is equity investors, but you may not want that.

Is this the trailer/tv park idea?
