GetVantage aims to fill the funding gap for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that don’t want or have access to equity funding and also desire to sidestep high-interest bank loans. The revenue-based financing platform enables startups to raise capital by pledging a certain percentage of their future revenues in exchange for money invested.

The fresh capital will be used to expand its product suite, boost its technology infrastructure and grow its presence in Southeast Asia. 

“We’re seeing thousands of new businesses and home-grown brands eager to scale up, and we are excited to work with incredible investors and funding partners like DMI Finance and InCred to provide founder-friendly capital to supercharge growth for over 1,000+ businesses in the next year,” Vasa told Inc42.
