We’re here to help you succeed
Our mission is to introduce new alternative funding resources, which help founders gain access to capital to accelerate growth. We believe earlier stage companies need a less complex fundraising experience so founders can focus on growth, product-market-fit, and customers. Since 2017 we've managed $3 million in revenue-based financing, which helps cash-strapped technology companies grow. In 2019 we partnered with several revenue-based lending providers, effectively creating a marketplace. This has enabled us to expand into asset-based lending and purchase order financing. Today we provide a range of alternative funding solutions to help companies accelerate customer acquisition, fund key hires, fund growth to improve valuation for future VC funding, and complement equity fundraising to lower cost of capital.

Headquartered in New York City, we operate with a strong set of beliefs that our success depends on establishing aligned incentives with excellent founders. Our approach ensures product advancement, ultimately realizing a model to help companies accelerate growth.

Sometimes you just need a little push.
