HOW TO GROW YOUR
B2B SAAS BUSINESS

Grow and scale your SaaS company without giving up equity or collateral with venture debt financing from River SaaS Capital.

GROW AND SCALE

There comes a time for many SaaS companies where Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) is over $150k but there simply is not enough capital on hand to grow and scale fast enough. Many of these companies turn to banks and venture capital lenders only to find they must put up a tremendous amount of collateral or give up equity in their companies. But those companies that turn to River SaaS Capital get the funds they need to aggressively grow and scale without giving up a dime in equity.

THE RIVER SAAS CAPITAL PRODUCT

THE RIVER SAAS CAPITAL PRODUCT

River SaaS Capital is dedicated to helping B2B SaaS companies achieve their goals. That’s why we offer three different types of debt financing, so you can choose what works best for your company.

   INTEREST ONLY

Our most popular loan, Interest Only allows companies to focus on growth by only having them pay the interest on their loan for greater financial flexibility.

   STANDARD INSTALLMENT

The most traditional style loan, Standard Installment loans provide companies with debt capital in one lump sum with terms typically running 36-48 months.

   STEP-UP STRUCTURE

Similar to revenue-based financing, Step-Up Structures have a repayment structure that is mapped out during the application process that coincides with a company’s growth.
