Funding opportunities for startups

A startup requires capital to grow. Therefore, many first-time founders and young entrepreneurs wonder how they can get their startup funded in the best possible way. Typically, the following funding options are available to startups:

Corporate credits and business loans:

  • Traditional bank loans and credits can provide capital quickly but they are very restrictive and not every startup is eligible to receive one - you are bound by limitations, interest rates and hard deadlines. Read more about corporate loans here. Crowdlending is considered a modern form of loan that doesn't require a bank.

Equity:

  • Whether it’s from your own savings or from friends and family: if you finance your startup with equity from within or completely bootstrap it, you act independently but are also limited in your options and often grow slowly.

Startup funding: what are the alternatives?

Many startups get outside funding - and lose control and company shares because they involve capital providers. Such startup financing is provided by private equity firms, private investors and groups:

Venture Capital and Business Angels:

  • Incubator and accelerator programs are other options to finance a startup. The former starts early after the company is founded and does not always involve giving shares. Accelerator programs usually accelerate the growth of an existing business as equity financing.

Crowdinvesting:

  • Also, crowdfunding as a digital solution is broad, but as a result often lacks an entrepreneurial growth focus. You can learn more about crowdfunding here. Other debt options include factoring and governmental funding, like state subsidies or grants.

Startup financing without dilution

All of the above have advantages and disadvantages. However, external financing through giving away your company shares in particular represents serious interference with entrepreneurial independence. With each financing round, startups lose valuable shares and dilute equity and control of their company.

Naturally, startup founders are looking for better solutions - and come across opportunities for revenue financing, such as recurring revenue financing. Startups can use their own predictable, recurring revenues to sustainably optimize their cash flow by means of growth capital that is available quickly and at any time.

We don’t tell you what to do – we’re a partner and provider of perspectives who also support you with insights and benchmarks if required.

What are the advantages of re:cap?

You receive non-dilutive on-demand capital, improve your cash flow and get the chance to make the most of your opportunities. re:cap allows you to grow sustainably and if required replace or reduce funding rounds that take up shares and dilute your company early on.

Looking to sell your company or merge? When startups get funded by re:cap, they strengthen their KPIs and optimize their valuation. This way, you prepare for the perfect financing round, significantly increase your exit value and secure the highest possible profit.

With re:cap, we were able to get non-dilutive funding at an early stage which is great for every startup founder. The whole process was simple and fast, and we look forward to a long-term partnership in building Meisterwerk.
