Scale your business with growth capital
SaaS Capital® has been lending to SaaS companies since 2007. It’s time to put our expertise to work for you.
Nice to meet you!
Streamlined access to non-dilutive capital for qualified SaaS companies
Lending to SaaS companies is our singular focus. Our underwriting processes and our products are attuned to the needs of your business.
Work with the SaaS Capital® team and experience:
- A transparent process tailored to SaaS businesses.
- Credit facilities with more availability and fewer restrictions.
- Quick decisions for qualified businesses; current venture-backing not required.
- Access to SaaS expertise and a decade worth of research data.
SaaS Capital pioneered alternative lending to SaaS. Since 2007 we have spoken to thousands of companies, reviewed hundreds of financials, and funded 60+ companies. We can make quick decisions. The typical time from first “hello” to funding is just 5 weeks.
Debt can be a powerful growth tool for SaaS companies. Properly structured, credit facilities can minimize dilution, while availability grows as the business scales. Our MRR line-of-credit offers high capital availability, few covenants, and long commitment periods.
SaaS Capital funds “scale-up” SaaS companies with $3 million or more in ARR. Companies do not need to be profitable or venture-backed to qualify, but they do need to have a solid history of retention.
We like to write things for you.
What's Your SaaS Company Worth?
Private B2B SaaS companies are typically valued using a multiple of annualized recurring revenue (ARR) but determining the correct multiple to apply is difficult. We provide a data-driven, statistically backed methodology for determining a baseline valuation multiple from a company’s ARR growth rate and net revenue retention, and the current level of the SaaS Capital IndexTM, which is published as a free service by SaaS Capital®. A full formula, as well as an Excel spreadsheet and summary table, are provided for your convenience.Read More
2023 SaaS Retention Benchmarks for Private B2B Companies
Across all SaaS companies, the 2023 median net retention is 102%, which is unchanged from 2022. Median gross retention is 91%, also unchanged from the previous year’s survey.
Alternative Financing Methods for SaaS Companies
SaaS Capital began funding software companies in 2007, at a time when banks were highly reluctant to offer meaningful lines of credit, and the so-called “venture debt” industry focused solely on companies that already raised venture capital. Since that time, a thriving ecosystem of SaaS-oriented capital providers has entered the fray. This post explores those alternative financing methods and when they might be a good fit (versus a line of credit or loan from a specialty lender like SaaS Capital).
When Should You Grant a Stock Warrant to a Lender?
Negotiating a senior debt deal that includes a warrant can sometimes result in a lower interest rate and a better-aligned relationship with an important capital partner. The warrant shouldn't be an automatic feature of every financing, but should never be completely off the table, either, because it has a rational purpose for both parties.
With SaaS Capital, we’ve accelerated growth, avoided dilution, and utilized increased access to capital over time as the business has scaled. The SaaS Capital team is great to work with and strives to make it a win, win proposition.
They are a flexible, non-dilutive option and they really understand the needs of a SaaS business. Due to their extensive reach and best practices insight from other SaaS companies, SaaS Capital also adds significant value to Updox beyond just capital.
Their approach to financing and experience with other SaaS companies has set them apart as the premier partner for our business.
We were fortunate to have a number of financing alternatives, but in the end, the availability of the SaaS Capital line, coupled with the ability to draw down cash only when we need it, made SaaS Capital the obvious choice.
