hey There,
Raising funding at bootstrap or seed level, absolutely is a tricky question and can be challenging in future too.

there are certain criteria which you can determine which path to choose from; such as,

What kind of Business you are going to start ?
what is your short term or long term business plan?
what value additions do you get form the investors other than the money?
what is the business dependency on you?
how is your growth projection?

the list can go on & on...

i think either you make a very calculative move, or better have a consultation with some Business Advisors.
