About us

Our mission

Our mission at Silvr is to help entrepreneurs succeed. That is why we have created the most founder-friendly financing solution.
 
We feel that founders should have easy access to funds to expedite the growth of their business, without having to pay costly compensation.
Boosting growth shouldn't mean putting a dent in your budget or losing control of your company if you have a bad month. Since you only pay back expenses as sales come in, Silvr is a better alternative to bank loans or equity fundraising. And it doesn't dilute your share capital.
We also firmly believe that it is essential that founders have the time to focus on their objectives. That is why getting financing needs to be quick and easy. At Silvr, we finance your growth within 24 hours, without requiring any red tape or guarantees.

Our story

Throughout their entrepreneurial careers, our founders Nima and Greg have been faced with the highly complex question of how to finance the growth of their businesses.
 
In the past, there were two solutions available to business owners:
-The first was debt financing. This funding can be hard for digital businesses to obtain, as they often don't have many assets and are unable to provide banks with the necessary guarantees;
-The second is equity fundraising. This option is even more complex and time consuming, and reduces your capital and control of your business;
Nima was still grappling with this challenge in 2020, when he was running his previous business. He looked at what was happening in the US and realised that there was a new financing model that had become the number one alternative to equity financing in record time.
 
This approach, known as Revenue Based Financing (RBF), means entrepreneurs can get fast access to financing for their businesses while keeping 100% of their capital and only making repayments in proportion to their turnover.

Inspired by this new financing model, Nima and Greg, a former classmate from the HEC business school, created Silvr, the first company in Europe to offer RBF.
