What Is Venture Debt?

Venture debt is a form of business loans. Companies often apply for venture debt to supplement money gained through investors. This could be because equity through investors is not enough to reach milestones or business owners want to avoid diluting company ownership.

Venture debt provides flexibility not found with investors and is ideal for businesses that are already equity-backed but need additional funding to complete a project. Ideal uses for venture debt include acquisitions, as a cushion leading up to the expansion, or as interim funding used until money starts flowing from a new venture.

As a company is growing, it may run into some growing pains that could be eased by additional funding. Business owners can work with either

  • 3 min read

Corporations are the basic and traditional business entity in this and many other countries.

Being subject to the default tax treatment is what makes a corporation a “C Corp;” being able to qualify for pass-through treatment, and actually making an election to do so, makes a corporation an “S Corp.” They are the same type of business entity, taxed dif

What Is Preferred Return?

A preferred return—simply called pref—describes the claim on profits given to preferred investors in a project. The preferred investors will be the first to receive returns up to a certain percentage, generally 8 to 10 percent. Once you reach this profit percentage, the excess profits are split among the rest of the investors as agreed upon in negotiations.

What is Post-money Valuation?

Post-money valuation is the value of a business after it has received cash as part of a venture capital or angel investment deal. This is basically the sum of the pre-money valuation plus the amount of the new investment/equity.

Post-money Valuation vs. Pre-money Valuation

The real difference between the two is that they value the company at different times, although both are valuation measures. Pre-money valuation is the value of a business before getting a cash investment, while post-money valuation is the value after it gets the investment. Pre-money valuation is the value that an investor ass
