INTRODUCING VENTURE DEBT FOR EMERGING INDIA.
Venture debt is a form of specialty debt financing provided to younger companies (start-ups) that are not serviced by traditional lenders like Banks. The financing is usually structured as a combination of medium term debt along with an equity kicker. While established businesses have many options for debt financing, new economy businesses have only had access to equity financing to fund their growth. We are here to change that.
We fund new economy businesses that are venture capital backed and show a potential of high-growth.
Companies in the Technology, Consumer or Healthcare domain, that typically do not possess any hard assets or collateral that can be used to get a traditional term or working capital loan.
Companies that have raised funding from a reputed Venture Capital fund as we co-invest with them to support your financing needs.
Companies should ideally be growing rapidly, with some revenue generation on a monthly basis. Depending on the stage of business, they should have path to profitability in 24-36 months.
Typical Debt Arrangement.
1-3 Years Term.
Small Equity Stake Option
We roll-up our sleeves to work with founders to get things done. Simple. We’ve been investing in Internet, Technology and Consumer businesses in India for the last decade and have a wealth of operating experience to support potential investee companies.
