Our tech solution and proprietary underwriting model enable us to deliver capital to SaaS founders more quickly and cheaply than legacy offline products, helping founders keep more of the business they built by minimizing dilution. We launched our product in November with an initial $150M fund and have since grown more than 100% MoM in monthly transaction volume.
