When determining the best path to raise capital for your company, it is important to consider the potential for return to your investors, the level of risk involved, and the stability of your company and the overall cost of capital.

Growth Capital

Growth capital or expansion capital is a form of financing that is provided to more mature companies that need to scale operations, restructure or expand into new markets/products. Unlike traditional forms of financing, such as debt or equity, growth capital is focused on providing companies with the resources they need to expand accelerate growth, rather than simply providing financial stability. In order to secure growth capital, companies must be able to demonstrate a strong track record of growth and a clear plan for how they will use the capital to expand their operations.
