In this episode of the SaaS Revolution Show our host Alex Theuma is joined by Jean-Laurent Pelissier, Managing Director; Head of Enterprise Software EMEA at HSBC Innovation Banking, who shares the different sources of financing in the current fundraising environment.


But the whole team basically stayed together. think if we look at the SVB UK company that was acquired by HSBC, we’ve had very little employee churn overall, which is fantastic. And I do think that’s a testament to the leadership, the ability to retain the employees and also the customer base. I think HSBC was able to bring stability to our customers in a very short order, which was fantastic. And that was kind of the number one priority there.”


Jean-Laurent shares:

  • The transition after HSBC’s acquisition of SVB UK
  • If highly efficient growth is going to be the new normal 
  • At what stage valuations are much more resilient (and why)
  • In which circumstances he recommends venture debt to venture capital
  • Combining recurring revenue lines and venture debt facilities to cover different use cases
  • Why he’s cautiously optimistic for 2024

and more.
