Non-Dilutive Growth Funding from Cypress...
More Than Just Capital

Cypress 2x

What is royalty-based growth capital?

An alternative to equity, royalty-based growth capital provides funding in exchange for a fixed percentage of your company’s future monthly revenues. The terms are simple: when the sum of the monthly royalty payments reaches a predetermined cap, the obligation is complete.

Bridging to Success Non-dilutive growth capital from Cypress can be a bridge to a later equity raise at a higher valuation...or even to an exit
Funding gap update2
  • Preserve Equity
    Royalty-based growth capital is structured as flexible debt allowing you to access the capital you need without giving up valuable equity
  • Retain Control
    For the business owner who wants to keep his or her company closely held, we never require a board seat or other control provisions typical of equity investments
  • Payback Flexibility
    Royalty-based growth capital is friendly to your cash flow due to its adaptive payment structure. The actual dollar amount you pay each month automatically adjusts with your company’s revenue performance
  • Aligned Incentives
    Our capital approach does not require a liquidity event for success. Each investment is tailored as flexible, long-term debt with entrepreneur-friendly features specifically designed for emerging companies
