GetVantage- start-up in one of its kind

Following the growth potential in the near future, two fintech veterans Bhavik Vasa and Amikt Srivastava co-founded GetVantage in 2019. The start-up works on the B2B2C model. To understand the product this star-up has to offer, it essential TO understand the concept of revenue-based financing.

The concept of revenue-based fundraising is in fashion now. Also known as royalty-based financing, more and more star-ups have taken the path of this kind of fund raising. It has paved a way for small business companies and start-ups to raise their capital without their limited business metrics such as asset size, profitability, collateral size and business credit score. By the way of revenue-based financing all businesses can raise capital in exchange for a certain percentage from their gross revenue. The provision for investment is not on blind basis. The investor analyzes the company’s potential growth from its online sales, marketing, credit capacity and taxation data. The scheme gets an upper hand over traditional funding because in the former there are no collateral or stake in equity demanded by the investor financing the company. The risk of bad debts in the books of investors is least, because the repayment of financing happens constantly through the borrower’s market settlements and payments made to him. Repayment is done on a monthly or quarterly basis from the gross revenue generated by the borrower.
