Investment pillar: Venture Credit

Venture credit (also referred to as venture debt) is a flexible form of credit for high growth scale ups.

Venture Credit is attractive to companies seeking a less dilutive financing option, or companies looking to incorporate debt within the funding mix of their capital raising round. It provides a longer capital runway, allowing companies more time to achieve important milestones before a subsequent round of financing. In the same way as our equity investments, the OneVentures team will continue to provide insight, network and strategic knowledge to the investee company.
