in a nutshell

Getting access to debt financing to reduce dependence on equity

Shore was looking for additional funding to extend their cash runway and, thus, their lifetime. As a digital SaaS company though, it was not easy to get additional funding from most debt providers, seeing as digital assets are often not recognized, and financing terms are undesirable.

Nikbin Rohany (Shore CEO), started talking to equity providers but also wanted to add a debt component to avoid massive dilution of equity and reduce the dependency on one type of financing. Hence, he discussed his situation with CFOs and founders in his network to find a solution.
