Venture Debt

Entrepreneurship requires risk takers across various capacities. The most important ingredient is the entrepreneur. Risk capital comes second and a strong venture capital investor can become a powerful catalyst to help entrepreneurs transform their ideas into a valuable business.

Venture debt is the next logical layer of risk capital and can be a great supplement to venture capital. It can be an attractive way for entrepreneurs to finance their business with less dilution than equity while providing a way to extend the cash flow runway between equity rounds. The cash buffer can be used by companies to power growth, build out the platform, make key hires, spend on marketing or finance their working capital needs. Companies have also used venture debt to finance acquisitions and global expansion as well.

For venture capital investors, the value proposition of venture debt is that it helps to leverage equity capital in order to increase valuations between equity rounds, reduce dilution, and enhance investor returns.

Overall, venture debt is a form of flexible capital which works in tandem with entrepreneurs and investors to help improve the ability of the company to increase enterprise value.

I would strongly recommend Innoven Capital India as a source of venture linked debt for the longer runway that it allows a company to create value. Innoven Capital adds value by not just being a lender, but also as a partner who understands your business and then helps you grow by recommending your company to prospective customers and new investors.
