Should You Use a 401(k) to Fund a Start-Up?
Derek Notman, CFP®, ChFC, CLU October 2, 2017
In the early stages of starting a business most entrepreneurs, at least those who are doing it for the first time, are looking for any and all sources to fund their new start-up.

For example, there are a lot of start-ups created by entrepreneurs who used to work at Epic, the massive health IT company based in Verona, Wisconsin. People work there for five years or so, making decent money and saving up in their 401(k).

Oh boy, the lines.
The longest lines I saw, in fact, were not at grocery stores, but at banks.
