Lighter Capital is the leading provider of revenue-based financing for growing technology companies. The company is filling the funding gap left by banks, angel investors and VC’s. Through its proprietary underwriting process – which blends financial data, technology and a deep understanding of software driven business models – the company has created a new source of capital for growing businesses that often get overlooked by traditional funding providers.
Lighter Capital believes companies perform better when owners are focused on building their businesses, and not fund-raising. Addressing this issue, the company has developed a “lighter” tech-enabled application process that substantially reduces both the effort required to apply and the time to get approved. Today the company has completed over 40 financings and is working hard to make capital more available to more technology companies at a much faster pace than traditional banks or equity investors. The company is based in Seattle, Washington and is backed by leading venture capital firms, Voyager Capital and Summit Capital.
