Velocity is on a mission to make business easier for the founders of e-commerce and D2C brands in India. Our revenue-based financing product was the first step in this direction. Based on personal experiences and conversations with fellow founders, we realized that access to financing was a hurdle for online businesses. We solve this problem by offering fast and flexible growth capital without equity dilution or collateral.
To further this vision of helping internet-first brands flourish, we have partnered with several relevant platforms to offer exclusive benefits of up to Rs. 18 lakh to our clients. The thought behind doing this is that while huge, well-established brands bag the best deals, young and emerging startups usually get charged hefty amounts. Through this initiative, we bring exclusive deals across business functions to help insurgent brands bloom.
In this article, we will walk you through these benefits and how you can leverage them.
