Our firm serves as an intermediary (Not a Fund) to provide growing companies easy access to business friendly funding. We focus on emerging companies, with annual revenue between $3M and $50M, that are seeking $1M-$3.5M in growth capital. Our focus is Royalty Based Finance (RBF).


Royalty Based Finance is an innovative new source of growth capital that fits between debt financing and venture capital. Your company receives growth capital in exchange for a fixed percentage of the monthly top-line revenue. Payments are flexible, no personal guarantees. The funding is non-dilutive; business owners retain equity and management control.


Raising capital is a difficult and time-consuming process, especially for a growing company. We provide our clients easier access to capital at more favorable terms, so they can concentrate on running their business.

We Understand the Challenge of Raising Capital

As experienced entrepreneurs we know how complex and time consuming it is to raise capital. We have been on both sides – raising capital and providing business owners access to capital. Our understanding and experience will save you time and money.
