Getting to a successful exit takes more than money; why settle for financing from startup capital providers that offer nothing more than a term sheet? Build a runway that puts your entrepreneurial goals within reach and realize your dreams on your terms — faster — with funding from Lighter Capital.

Lighter Capital funding and connections spur Flip’s $6.5M infusion

Voice assistant developer Flip (formerly RedRoute) used three rounds of non-dilutive financing to power phenomenal growth, resulting in its acquisition of $6.5 million in VC seed funding led by ScOp Venture Capital, Bullpen Capital, and a group of angel investors.

“Lighter was brilliant because of how easy and fast it was to access capital. Being non-dilutive and affordable are great, but time is everything for a founder. The VC support was absolutely above and beyond, and included an intro to one of our eventual investors.”

Brian Schiff

Co-Founder and CEO, Flip

Traditional banks don’t understand your business, so they tie you down with risk and restrictions. Most short-term debt burns up your cash quickly, making it impossible to scale. VC and equity partnerships require major sacrifices not only of time, but also of ownership and control.
