FAQsView all FAQs
Growth capital refers to a wide variety of funding streams, which promote the growth of an organisation. Growth capital can be split into two categories: equity and debt.
Raising funds via equity is when a business raises a sum of cash by selling some of its equity. The investor then holds the agreed stake in the business and will benefit from the firm’s success as it grows.
The alternative, growth debt, does not require any equity dilution. The business raises the cash like a conventional loan and pays back the original sum, plus interest, on a monthly basis.
There are pros and cons for both growth debt and equity.
For example, a business needs to be generating enough revenue to service growth debt repayments, which might be difficult for a business in its earlier stages. However, for a business with a proven business model that is ready to scale-up, growth debt enables them to retain full control of the business, as there is no dilution of equity. Furthermore, because the lender does not take a stake in the business, debt can work out to be a less expensive way of raising capital in the long run.
Growth Lending only offers growth capital in the form of debt; term loans for established businesses ready to accelerate growth; venture debt for earlier stage firms ready to scale up; and flexible invoice discounting for companies that want to improve their cash flow to achieve next-level growth.
