Still, agricultural chemical manufacturers dedicate much of their significant research and develop budgets to new chemical development, according to a survey of their spending plans commissioned by industry's trade organization, CropLife America, CropLife International and the European Crop Protection Association. Eleven companies that responded to the survey, published in March 2016, said they spent nearly $2.4 billion on research and development, dedicating 93 percent of it to chemical products. "When you look at the multinationals and the amount they have to spend just to go and find something that might work it's very expensive," said Tuttle, AgriMetis' CEO. Bringing a new chemical to market can take a decade and cost $285 million, according to CropLife. Tuttle thinks his company can make inroads with large chemical companies by offering up that "something that might work," allowing the big companies to press fast-forward on the development process. With the influx of cash, AgriMetis hopes to triple the number of products in its pipeline, from four to as many as 13.

One possible disadvantage of utilizing equity financing to raise capital is that the new business owner may lose partial or complete autonomy over their new business.

Even if you have a well established business, you still need to raise money for upcoming projects.
