Growth is everything

How do SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) companies achieve their full growth potential?

Phase 1: The product is not yet live, and development is in focus. Fine-tuning is done through beta versions – some of which are tested by early adopters.

Phase 2: The product has been launched, and the SaaS business is fully operational. Considerable growth leaps are impossible without additional capital.

Phase 3: The company must continue to grow and increase revenues based on an established customer base.

Phase 4: Sale, merger or further growth options are possible in the fourth phase of a SaaS company.

Phase 2 as a central milestone

The second phase is a stepping stone. It is all the more important to pass through it successfully. However, many start-ups dilute their company early on and, above all, continuously. re:cap offers an alternative SaaS financing that does not interfere with founders and does not take away their shares.

Financing for SaaS companies

Many SaaS companies generate revenue from recurring revenue streams. To increase them continuously, the customer base must grow. To do this, a SaaS business needs appropriate capital – especially in the second growth phase. SaaS financing can help.

What financing is available for SaaS companies?

Credits and loans

Suitable for quick wins through short-term capital without selling company shares. Less focused on considerable and sustainable growth and often not attainable for young software companies. Additionally, banks offer capital only.

Venture capital

Suitable for larger investments and advisory support. Venture capital is dilutive – they exchange capital for equity. Additionally, venture capital firms often have a say in entrepreneurial decisions.

Avoid dilution and keep control

SaaS business models are growing rapidly. This highlights the demand – especially in the subscription economy. But lively competition can also lead to cash flow problems. In their search for financing, young companies quickly turn to tried-and-true methods. In the early stages, these are usually VC investors.

But with each financing round, dilution increases and founders lose equity – and control. This is where alternative SaaS financing comes into play – smart, fair, innovative and flexible. This is exactly what recurring revenue financing offers. It is directly linked to revenues and thus, a perfect fit for SaaS companies.

How do SaaS companies work?

SaaS stands for Software-as-a-Service and refers to a licensing and distribution model by which companies offer software solutions online as a service.

What growth stages do SaaS companies go through?

After the preparatory early-stage phase, the product goes live, becomes better known, and establishes itself in the market, before the customer base ideally expands significantly and finally either a company sale, a merger, or further growth takes place.

Why is revenue financing ideal for SaaS companies?

In the important second growth phase, when SaaS companies are already on the market and generating recurring revenue, revenue financing provides flexible SaaS funding based on the ARR without dilution or loss of control.

What is ARR?

ARR refers to annual recurring revenue. Specifically, in the subscription economy, ARR refers to the annual value of regular revenue generated through subscriptions.

What does ACV mean?

ACV stands for Annual Contract Value and in a SaaS business, it refers to the average annual value of a subscription - i.e., the holistic contract value excluding one-time fees divided by the contract term in years.
