Why should I use re:cap to finance growth investments when I could use the venture capital I already have access to?

Venture Capital investors provide founders with capital in a very early stage where uncertainty is high regarding how and when the product or service will come out and if you achieve product market fit. In return, VCs demand equity and shared control via board seats.Growth investments on the other hand are more planable. When you are about to launch a growth initiative, you typically have a good idea of expected ROI based on known CAC and sales cycles. To finance these more predictable investments you should not use expensive Venture Capital. re:cap provides less costly and flexible access to capital and lets you quickly take advantage of emerging growth.

When should I finance growth with re:cap?

You should have a solid customer base and positive unit economics which your growth assumptions are based on. Growth investments financed with re:cap shouldn’t be a pure bet and the expected returns should be calculated appropriately. Main pillars of a solid growth case are CAC and CLV of which you should have a good understanding of. Our team is happy to provide you with further advice.

How important is CAC payback time?

The CAC payback period indicates how long it takes to earn back the money invested for acquiring new customers. When financing growth initiatives, we generally distinguish between two main groups of CAC payback characteristics: If you have a short CAC payback time (<6 months), customers turn profitable quickly, and thus the returns can pay back the re:cap financing accordingly – a straightforward case to go ahead.

Longer payback periods (> 12 months) result in more bound-up liquidity. In order to prevent runway shortening, we will plan recurring financing tranches to give time for payback and keep your cash stable. In both cases it is possible to accelerate growth with re:cap. The difference depends on how to use financing without shortening your runway.
