3 solutions depending on your needs

Mezzanine financing customized to your needs

Mezzanine financing offers repayment terms tailored to your business reality. It gives you the freedom to structure the loan according to your cash inflows in order to protect your working capital. It’s an alternative that can bridge the gap between senior debt and equity financing to get your project moving forward.

Cash flow financing for growth projects

Your company has demonstrated a consistent track record of positive and strong cash flow and you want to plan large-scale growth projects. This solution helps you raise the capital you need with stable terms and conditions that provide peace of mind.

Quasi-equity financing to share the risk with us

You run a start-up business that has not yet reached positive cash flow but you forecast that you will generate strong cash flow in the near term. This attractive solution allows you to raise capital to keep cash in your business for daily operations.
