In this episode, BJ walks through Lighter Capital’s revenue-based financing model, explains how our funding works and what type of business are good candidates for it.

  • What revenue-based financing is and how it works
  • Why raising venture capital is not for everyone
  • Notable trends in the macro fundraising environment

But growing it, scaling it, and sustaining your business is the real challenge. This podcast will help you discover and evaluate how an alternative funding option like Lighter Capital compares with traditional venture capital. Have a listen!
