About Lighter Capital
At Lighter Capital, we’re breaking down the barriers to small business growth funding. Our revenue-based finance model exchanges growth capital for a fixed percentage of the company’s revenues. This structure is more flexible, easier, and faster than traditional loans, making us “lighter” than the marble and mahogany of the antiquated banks.

Since 2010, Lighter Capital has funded dozens of fast growing companies that had no interest in personal guarantees from a bank nor the dilution and control provisions from venture capitalists. Lighter Capital invests $50k to $1M into companies with revenues of $15k per month and up. For more information, or to apply, visit:
