The Venture Debt Conference 2024 The Edison Ballroom, New York
The use of venture debt has gained popularity as emerging growth companies increasingly seek creative forms of financing that minimize ownership dilution. Debt products such as term loans, revenue-based financing, receivables financing, and equipment financing fall under the broad moniker of venture debt, but despite the growing popularity of these products, for many, venture debt remains an unfamiliar form of financing.
The Venture Debt Conference offers a unique opportunity for networking and discussion of nondilutive loan strategies for VC-backed and emerging growth companies. Hosted by DealFlow Events, this full-day forum addresses the growing interest in using venture debt to complement venture capital and to discuss alternative financing with company executives unfamiliar with these financing strategies.
In 2023, the failure of Silicon Valley Bank transformed the venture debt market into a highly competitive landscape where institutions have been scrambling for dominance.
The use of venture debt reached $32 billion in 2022, more than four times the $7.5 billion in 2012, according to PitchBook. SVB’s share of that volume has been estimated at approximately 21% of the market.
