In this episode of the SaaS Revolution Show our host Alex Theuma is joined by Denis Mosolov, Managing Partner Venture Debt at Flashpoint, as he discusses what’s out there (from a founder’s perspective) if you don’t want to dilute.


“It’s a big challenge for us, because you know if your company’s really going to take-off and show growth levels that are exciting for the VC community, you do need to invest and you do need to know how to raise capital. That’s a skill that the founders need to have and so it is a red flag for me if something is like 100% bootstrapped, because there’s a big question mark – ‘are you guys actually able to raise capital?’.


Denis shares:

  • Humble beginnings, half billion under management, and three product lines later: Flashpoint’s founding story
  • The current state of venture debt: from ‘flight to brand’ to extension rounds
  • Different sources of capital and their requirements – asset backed debt, convertibles, government subsidies, revenue-based financing, venture debt and more
  • When a founder would want to borrow against inventory vs seek out flexible non-dilutive capital, to non-dilutive expensive ‘royalties’
  • His advice to ‘hustle, scramble, make quick decisions, and be proactive’

and more!
