Obtain non-dilutive capital
Venture funding is not enough
Venture funding alone is insufficient and too dilutive to reach meaningful scale for ClimateTechs with capital heavy operations to produce and sell hardware and distributed infrastructure solutions.
Banks are not there when you need them the most
Banks typically do not finance the working capital requirement of scale-ups or SMEs. Companies are left with raising dilutive capital to finance their working capital or worse are unable to fulfill customer orders.
Scalibility and flexibility is the crux of the matter
Scale-ups or SMEs tapping into international markets are constrained by the limited flexibility offered by banks (e.g. covenants, geographic scope) while others have already locked up costly equity capital in distributed infrastructure and as-a-service business models.
