Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

As your company grows and the equity becomes worth more, there comes a time to switch over to debt funding.

There are several forms of debt to consider.  Each one is used for a different application. 

The primary options are as follows:

  1. Traditional bank loan - requires a personal guarantee and is most often used to launch a company.
  2. Line of credit - once you have revenue, this can be used to smooth out the uneven bumps in your cash flow.
  3. Equipment financing --if you need equipment for your business this is a good way to finance it as it reduces your fundraise requirements.
  4. Revenue-based funding - once you have a steady flow of revenue, you can use revenue-based funding to accelerate the growth as you pay back out of the revenue stream.
  5. Factoring/Accounts receivable funding - once you have a steady book of business, you can borrow against the accounts receivable line.
  6. Venture debt - once you have substantial revenue, you can raise debt funding rather than equity funding, as it will be cheaper in the long run. 

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.

In this episode, Hall welcomes Davron Karimov, CEO of FunderHunt.

Funderhunt specializes in getting capital to business owners across America who are doing $5,000 and above in monthly revenue.

If you take a look at their website, there is no application in order to get a business loan, there is no printing, or faxing, or scanning required. There is a short 3-5-question questionnaire asking you about your business goals. Assuming it's a match, their algorithm has the capability to match you with perfect funding options based on your answers. Since last year, they have doubled many times in monthly funding volumes.

Typical funding amounts range from $5,000-$2M, depending on factors like monthly revenue, number of deposits, industry, amount of NSF's/negative days, and credit score. Business owners can expect to get a business loan or an advance of 1-2 months of their monthly revenue.

Davron is the star of the TV show, The Broker (now postponed), and the CEO of Funderhunt. Davron was raised in New York. In 2017, he left college without knowing that he still had to pay for the classes he canceled. He had to find a way to come up with $10K within 2 months. Knowing the only way to avoid bankruptcy was to get a job, he found himself working at a sales job in commercial finance. After closing some early deals at the firm he worked at, a friend with experience building tech startups told him that he could do it on his own and make more dollars. They started Funderhunt with two partners in New York City. After a breakup with his business partners, he moved far away from home, to Miami, Florida, and opened a new office. They now have salespeople that are closing deals and he is on track to have the best year ever.

Davron shares his background, advises entrepreneurs and investors, shares how he sees the industry evolving, and how FunderHunt works.
