Link or Bridge Capital
This funding model designed to "Link" high-quality projects to large-scale funding via short-term capital investments. Frequently, large-scale investments require the project developer to have a certain amount of equity already invested into the company. Link capital can serve as that "skin-in-the-game" required by larger funders and funding methodologies. Additionally, Link Capital can serve as interim funds to secure pending contracts and purchase orders.
Most Link investments range between $100k to $500k USD with a usual duration of six months or less. Ideal candidates will have a clear exit strategy for these short-term investments and are often well-collateralized. Equity participation, points and/or additional fees may apply and are on a case-by-case basis.
