Entrepreneur finance can be used for a variety of purposes. Commonly it is used to start a new business venture or to grow a start-up. You can also deploy capital raised through this type of finance to buy out a business partner or to make strategic investments to support your growth if you have an established business.
In this case, we were approached by a US based entrepreneur interested in raising funds to put liquidity into his business. The client wanted to use his $8 million property as collateral to raise $4 million.
Exceptionally few mainstream lenders will be comfortable unlocking significant liquidity for this type of finance. Most of the providers in the market are set up to service smaller businesses, and most consider large loans too risky. They will shy away from complex deals, significant sums of money and unusual situations. Anything in your background that doesn’t pass a lender’s appetite for risk will see your application rejected, even if you run a fantastic, profit-making and easily scalable business in every other way.
