Problem


YOU DESERVE BETTER

For a large majority of growth-stage companies, the process of securing growth capital on reasonable terms in reasonable timelines is broken.

In addition to demanding a material ownership stake in your company, equity investors typically also require a liquidation preference, a governance role and redemption rights.

The equity due diligence process can run on for months with no certainty around your ability to close on funding and the more value you create, the more you hand over to your equity investor.

At the other end of the spectrum, banks and debt providers can be equally challenging to work with if your business doesn't have a traditional collateral profile, compliant financial metrics or an institutional equity sponsor.

Banks and other debt providers often require personal guarantees or provide only limited, short-term financing solutions that don't allow a company to make longer-term, equity-like investments in its business.

We think you deserve better.

 

Solution


LESS PAIN, MORE GAIN

Decathlon’s revenue funding solutions provide growth-oriented companies with the capital they need to reach their full potential.

By agreeing to repay a modest, fixed percentage of future monthly revenues towards the satisfaction of a pre-agreed return target, a company is able to access growth capital without the limitations of debt or the high-cost of equity.

As the country's leading revenue funding investor, Decathlon works with dozens of companies each year to help them accelerate growth and create value.

We're active in all geographic markets in the U.S. and Canada and support businesses in a wide range of industries and vertical markets.
