Funding for the 99%

You don't need to be a unicorn to get funded by us. Since we fund based on revenues instead of equity, you can be a horse, donkey, or even a zebra. We don't fund pigmy's though, sorry.

The minimum criteria to be eligible for funding is:
Minimum of six months in business.Minimum of $10,000 in monthly revenues.Your business is based in the United States.

A new investment structure to align incentives properly

Metcalfe's Structuralized Revenue Purchase (SRP) is an agreement where your business sells its future revenues to our funders without the need for collateral or equity.

Every day, a small fixed percentage of your daily revenues will automatically be withdrawn from your bank account. Somedays you'll pay more and some days less, depending on how many sales you made that day.

The SRP is designed to flow with the ups and downs of your business instead of forcing you to make fixed loan payments or reaching insane equity valuations.

Experienced funders

Our funders are established small business financiers and startup investors who have financed emerging growth companies across many industries.

Some of the funders we work with have relationships with banks and other pools of private equity money.

Unbeatable terms

Unlike a loan, there is no interest rate or penalty for paying back our funder ahead of schedule. In fact, the faster you do, the sooner you'll be eligible for more funding.

Compared to the terms you'd have to negotiate with equity investors and banks, Metcalfe's funders will never ask for board seats and don't require you to put up your house as collateral to get funding.

Cap-table friendly

Since our SRP investment structure is not based on equity, Metcalfe is an excellent way to boost your business to reach your next milestone or funding round.

Instead of financing your company internally, utilize our fast and convenient funding process to get the money you need and get back to doing what you do best: being a leader and running your business.

Our Story

We're growing businesses in a new way.

Our premise for founding Metcalfe is simple: a better way to grow businesses. Through our research, we discovered that traditional financing methods haven't evolved much over the past couple of decades and their business models haven't adapted to the funding needs of modern businesses well. Everything is still the same: VCs fund in exchange for equity, Banks fund based on collateral, and Crowdfunding... well, crowdfunding is for donations and ICOs. Given that VCs turn down 99% of businesses and banks see innovation as risk instead of opportunity, this has created an immense problem for business owners of all sizes who need capital to grow their business. That's why we created Metcalfe.

Metcalfe relies on a new business model which enables your business to get funded without having to worry about giving up control of your company, spending time pitching or fundraising, or having to pay fixed loan payments and collateral. Our funders also don't have to worry about your business becoming the next Uber or Facebook in order for us all to make money. Our funding options are straightforward and offer founder-friendly terms that are uniquely suited to your business. You likely won't find these terms anywhere else but here. Our entire process is streamlined by focusing on your business data, instead of relying on months of due diligence and your credit score.

If you are ready to grow your online business with a transparent growth partner who appreciates your time and funding needs, you've come to the right place.

Thank you,

Dispute Resolution. Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It is part of your contract with Company and affects your rights.  It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.

Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by the Company that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement.  Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English.  This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and the Company, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.

Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief.  A Notice to the Company should be sent to: 907 7th St, Santa Monica CA 90403. After the Notice is received, you and the Company may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally.  If you and the Company do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding.  The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award to which either party is entitled.

Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association, an established alternative dispute resolution provider that offers arbitration as set forth in this section.  If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider.  The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms.  The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules governing the arbitration are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.  The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator.  Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief.  For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules.  Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States, and unless the parties agree otherwise.  If you reside outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearings. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  If the arbitrator grants you an award that is greater than the last settlement offer that the Company made to you prior to the initiation of arbitration, the Company will pay you the greater of the award or $2,500.00.  Each party shall bear its own costs and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.

Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration.  The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.

Time Limits. If you or the Company pursues arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.

Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities of you and the Company, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties.  Privacy Policy: https://app.termly.io/document/privacy-policy/60a6981c-8918-43f1-b35b-6cf318174582
