    I apologize if I am posting this thread in the wrong area, but it seemed to fit. I am looking to start a business in a couple of years and would like to invest a little if the money I have saved so that it will hopefully grow. I do not want to take out a loan for my business. What is the best way to invest my business startup money?

    If you're going to take the $ out of the investments and put them into your own startup in a couple of years, you'll want to invest the $ conservatively between then and now.

    You might take a look at very short term debt instruments. I often invest a few bucks into local municipal debt that matures in a short period of time. They tend to pay better than average interest that sometimes rivals that of better junk bond / high yield short term debt issues.

    Another place to look is the "structured investments" put together by some big brokerage firms. They tend to mature in pretty short timeframes.
