Bridge Financing

  • 8 min read

What Is Bridge Financing?

Bridge financing is when investors invest in a startup business with a short term loan in order to help it reach the next round of funding, on the basis that they will receive their money back. Basically, it is used to 'bridge' the gap between investments to keep a startup company afloat.

Startups use bridge financing or a 'bridge round' in order to help them get to a significant round of funding such as an equity funding (like a venture capital round) or the sale of the company.

The initial investors would receive a promissory note documenting their bridge investment. In this promissory note, the startup would promise to repay the lenders, sometimes with interest

For example, if you raised $500,000 in round A funding, but needed another $500,000 and you were projected to raise $2,000,000 in round B funding, you coul

Down Round

  • 5 min read

What Is a Down Round?

A "down round" is a round of financing where investors pay less for the company's stock than the previous investors. If it happens to your company, it doesn't mean the end times are coming, but it is a major wake-up call and a sign that something needs to change.

The companies that can go through down rounds are startups and other private businesses that don't trade stocks on a public exchange. With no public trading, they sell stock in rounds to private investors. Since a stock exchange can't set the company's value, the company and the investors have to work out their value instead. And when this sets the company's value to lower than it was before, it creates a down round.

Why Is a Down Round Important?

In an ideal world, every round brings in more money, since the business is always growing and

Rights Offering

  • 7 min read

What Is a Rights Offering?

A rights offering takes place when a company needs to raise more money. Rather than offer shares to anyone, it gives current shareholders a chance to buy more stock during a fixed period.

How Does a Rights Offering Help?

This method lets shareholders keep their current level of ownership in the business while the company gets more capital. In most rights offerings, the existing shareholders get a discounted price for new stock purchases.

When a shareholder doesn't want to buy additional stock, he can transfer the rights on the open market, giving someone else a chance to buy company stock at a discounted price. Since the offering rate is low, the company is likely to sell most or all of its newly available stock.

The ability to transfer means that if a current stockholder doesn't want to buy more, he can easily find someone who will. The only catch is that the third party must buy within the fixed time fr
