A Note From Lighter Capital on Silicon Valley Bank

Updated: Apr 24

The recent news about Silicon Valley Bank is saddening for those in the startup world. For almost 40 years, SVB helped startups and technology companies succeed, including Lighter Capital.

While SVB and Lighter Capital worked together for many years, SVB has never been a credit facility provider for Lighter Capital. Our ability to continue funding startups is unaffected by the recent SVB events.

If you are new to Lighter Capital

We have been helping startups grow without giving up equity for over a decade.

If the recent SVB events are disrupting or impacting your fundraising, we may be able to help. Our non-dilutive startup funding makes it easy to obtain financing without requiring you to provide pitch decks, and business plans, sell portions of your company to us, or sign warrants and covenants.

We offer a variety of non-dilutive financing packages, including revenue-based, term-based, and contract-based. Our long-term financing, typically three years, gives you enough time to put the money to work. If you’re a technology company that needs funding and have at least $15K MRR, a variety of customers, and are located in the US, Canada, or Australia - we may be able to help.
