Knowledge Base

Revenue-based financing is a simple type of funding in which a company receives funding in exchange for a share in its future revenue until a pre-defined absolute amount – the cap – is reached. Unlike rigid repayment plans of bank loans or venture debt instruments, the repayments in revenue-based finance are tied to monthly revenue and thus naturally adapt to cash flows, going up when revenues are strong and down when revenues are weak. As no valuation is necessary funding can easily be increased as revenues increase.

How revenue-based finance creates value for founders

 

Revenue-based finance is a quantum leap forward in the way the growth of digital businesses with recurring revenues is funded. The Round2 revenue-based finance solution is not only a simple, flexible and transparent form of growth funding, it also creates exceptional value for Founders and shareholders without diluting ownership.
