“I tried to get money from banks, but there were no hard assets to lend against or they wanted too much control. That’s when Lighter Capital came in.”

Rupert Mayer, IPfolio

“We were used to bootstrapping, and I liked that this type of financing would allow us to bootstrap our way out of any difficulty. If we had done a normal debt—with a fixed repayment amount—financing would have been more risky.”

David Lischner, Valant

“The more cash receipts we had, the faster we could pay. So the incentives were completely aligned. The better we did, the better Lighter Capital did.”

Max Rudman, SteelBrick
