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.
Preserve EquityRoyalty-based growth capital is structured as flexible debt allowing you to access the capital you need without giving up valuable equity
Retain ControlFor 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 FlexibilityRoyalty-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 IncentivesOur 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

The Only Certainty is Uncertainty
Mathematician John Allen Paulos’ famous saying was validated this month with the turmoil from Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and the associated uncertainty that rippled through the tech world. Much has been tweeted, written, and even legislated about SVB. But in the rush to offer “hot takes” on banking, venture capital and government oversight, the most notable constituency minimized in the discussion has been emerging tech companies themselves. How will the fallout impact them?
