Architect Capital provides alternative capital to early-stage tech companies with a new $100M fund.
In a bid to avoid the conventional fundraising methods and venture capital or debt, early-stage startups are turning to other alternatives to raise the needed capital. As such, a set of new firms have come up with fresh and innovative ways of meeting this need. A good example of this is Think Pipe.
Aimed at serving the same need, Architect Capital kicks off with over $100 million in funds and a goal to serve as an “asset-based lender” to early-stage firms in tech with impressive and speedy growth records.
Architect Capital has a unique goal to financing alternatives that will either reduce or eliminate dilution for “asset-rich” startups in sectors such as fintech, e-commerce, and SaaS.
The firm also intends to focus on Latin America and the United States, though the former is considered of greater priority. This is because, the region, according to Architect Capital, “does not have a plethora of institutional financing available against assets.”
The firm does not intend to completely kick out the traditional ways of raising funds entirely but holds the opinion that having options that can complement them is long overdue.
