Venture Debt 101: is it right for your business?

About this webinar

Venture Capital might be the most popular fundraising option in the startup world, but it's certainly not the only one. Amongst the many financing channels available for startups, venture debt has gained popularity over the years to the point some even wonder, is venture debt the new venture capital?

If you're curious to learn more about this financing instrument, join us on October 29th at 6pm CET for an interactive workshop with Altio on an introduction to venture debt & best practices.

You'll learn about:

  • What is venture debt, and when does it make sense to raise a round?
  • Why is venture debt a particularly good option for SaaS businesses?
  • What does the process for raising venture debt look like? (timeline, eligibility, due-diligence...)
  • How do you navigate the post-execution process?

Our experts will also answer your questions during a live Q&A!
