The problem with being so young is that a ship's role to explore was a high risk/high reward business and Captain Hudson was in his early 20's and looked like a kid so getting investors was more challenging than what seasoned sea captains dealt with.
Ship captains would go around from investor to investor trying to convince them it would be financially rewarding to back them on expeditions because they would get a percentage of the bounty the captain discovered like gold and silver.
Sometimes captains would go directly to the Royal Courts of countries like Britain, France, and Spain to get an investment. Their selling point being they would make them aware of any land they discovered that would be of value to their empire. They’d also go to wealthy merchants to pursue investments and promise to find better trade routes and new trade opportunities with other lands.
Captain Hudson became a phenome and eventually used his skills to operate war ships thus helping us win the Revolution. The reason I like him so much is that he is known as "The Father of the American Navy."
