"Non-dilutive capital has been an integral part of our funding strategy, and we couldn't be happier with the Lighter Capital experience.  Beyond capital, Lighter has provided support, community, and networking opportunities—they really feel part of the team."

Peter Hall, Co-founder at Helio

“I came away from the Lighter Summit energized and with a new perspective on how to move my business forward. Someone said that being an entrepreneur is lonely—how true! Spending a few days sharing experiences with other members of the 'Lonely-Hearts Club' was like stopping at an oasis in the middle of the desert. It will have an impact on me for a long time to come.”

David Gould, Principal at Solution One Partners
