Get fast access to
flexible SaaS financing.

Fuel growth with SaaS financing.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies with monthly and annual subscription fees have great long-term potential, but their model also creates significant cash flow challenges. SaaS businesses incur expenses today to make sales that translate into revenue in the future. This can create a real cash crunch, leading to the need for SaaS financing. That’s where River SaaS Capital comes in.

Traditional banks resist lending to SaaS businesses because they often lack the required collateral assets or balance sheets. Equity financing is an option, but often requires you to give up large percentages of ownership to investors.

Our SaaS financing options hit the sweet spot, providing you with access to capital appropriate for your current growth status and future goals — initially, via non-dilutive term loans and as appropriate over the long-term, via equity.

SaaS Financing Solutions

How we help

With flexible SaaS financing solutions and a partnership-based approach, River SaaS Capital lends on terms that are agreeable to you. We often fund companies who are earlier in their growth cycle than our counterparts and we also back companies that lack institutional venture capital sponsorship.

Who we finance

We look for SaaS companies with Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) of at least $150k and strong customer retention rates. Current profitability is not required.

How it works

River SaaS lends between $500K–$1.5M (typically 4x MRR) to qualified new borrowers. Initially, funds are usually structured as 36- or 48-month term loans with principal and interest paid monthly, but alternatives are available, including interest-only for a period of time, and step-up structures increasing the payment as the company scales. We pride ourselves on our ability to grow with our portfolio companies over time, with the ability to lend up to $4M of either debt or equity to established borrowers.

Seed Stage Companies

Seed stage companies are generally pre-revenue or are not generating enough monthly recurring revenue (MRR) to qualify for venture debt.

But if you are generating at least some MRR and showing signs of product/market fit, we would love to talk about how we can help.
