Introducing Client Perks: Business Tools for Scaling Your Startup

We love our clients; after all, we succeed only when our clients succeed. As part of our mission to help you scale your startup, we want to provide more than just funding. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce the Lighter Capital Client Perks program!

With our Client Perks program, you can put that funding to good use and save money on powerful business tools and services — marketing, sales, HR, finance, and accounting solutions — needed as you embark on your next phase of growth.

We’ve partnered with a range of leading software vendors and solution providers to offer our clients more than $75,000 in discounts and perks.

What are Client Perks?

Our Client Perks program is a unique, innovative bundling of popular business tools and services that our clients can use for free — or at a dramatic discount — to help you accelerate the growth of your startup.

Born out of the symbiotic relationship between Lighter Capital, the early state tech startups we fund, and the ecosystem of vendors that want access to these startups, the goal of our Client Perks program is to offer our clients a money-saving avenue to solutions that will drive revenue growth, boost productivity and improve your bottom line.

“We recognize that in today’s business environment, it takes more than money for tech startups to achieve success – so we’ve assembled a lineup of services specially catered to assist early-stage companies. Our goal is to help startups grow. We’d love it if companies can receive enough savings from these perks that they effectively pay us no interest on our loans. That’s a great benefit for everyone!” – BJ Lackland, CEO of Lighter Capital

Exploring funding options for your tech startup? Ever heard of revenue-based financing? In short, a company pays a percentage of future revenue to an investor in exchange for capital up-front. With Lighter Capital, entrepreneurs can receive from $50,000 up to $2 million in capital to help you get your startup to the next level, without giving up equity or control of your company.
The loan payments are tied to monthly revenue, going up for strong-revenue months and down for low-revenue months – a great option for tech startups.
