Types of Funding
ICA provides flexible, patient capital options to align with the growth of each company. Our typical investment size is around $500,000. We invest in businesses primarily through the use of a convertible note structure (short-term debt that can convert into equity). In some instances, we also provide other types of funding tools, such as term loans or equity investments.
ICA loans money to your business, and instead of a return in the form of principal plus interest, ICA can receive equity. Convertible notes provide flexibility, alignment, and can serve as an asset on your business’ balance sheet to help you raise additional capital and operate your businesses.
