Commercial Banks, Consulting Firms, Venture Capital Firms, and Specialty Lending Firms attended the Venture Debt Conference taking place in New York City on March 31st, 2023. This was the largest conference dedicated to non-dilutive financing strategies for developing growth businesses.
The Venture Debt Conference was held to increase knowledge and awareness about the new financing products available for SMEs. It offered a great opportunity for networking and discussing non-dilutive loan strategies for emerging and VC-backed growth companies.
The full-day conference addressed an increasing interest in using venture debt to supplement venture capital. The industry experts shared their insights into alternative financing with businesses unaware of these investment strategies. Besides a synopsis of the venture debt financing available, the conference offered case studies from industry leaders on their experiences of working with SMEs and what this association has meant for their business. Attendees also had the opportunity to ask questions from the financing teams after the event.
Venture Debt Driving Business Growth
In light of economic challenges, a complex fundraising environment, and downward pressure on valuations, fast-growth companies are looking for alternative funding options as a bridge to their next round of equity financing and to drive growth. Early-stage businesses without broad historic financials may struggle to contact traditional bank financing in the same manner as more established companies.
Venture debt is a form of non-dilutive, flexible financing offered to startups to prolong their implied cash runway and fund existing working capital requirements until their next round of equity financing. The use of venture debt has gained a reputation as evolving growth companies stay private longer and pursue innovative forms of financing to diminish dilution. Many debt products, such as revenue-based financing, term loans, equipment financing, and receivables financing, fall under the wide moniker of venture debt. Venture debt tends to continue evolving as a striking financing option for new venture-backed businesses.
The Venture Debt Conference was focused on innovative, fast-growing SMEs and mid-caps seeking to hasten their advancement and invest in research and development. The event was personalized to allow attendees to gain insights into the specific support the businesses can get under this program. It also provided a great opportunity to engage directly with representatives of the banks, CFOs, and CEOs of creative start-up companies, professional service firms, venture capital funds, and others.
