Venture debt is a form of business financing that is highly suitable for high-growth startups (typically Series B or C) who do not have the collateral required by traditional banks. It is an attractive form of funding because it minimises dilution of a founder’s ownership stake.
Venture debt can be used as working capital to fund further expansion, undertake new projects or acquisition, thus extending a start-up’s cash runway. Venture debt makes sense as it puts start-up companies in a strong position to raise future rounds of equity at higher valuations.
