Designed For Growth.

Multi-stage Growth Capital + Growth Academy; built for acceleration-stage B2B software companies.
Platform

Growth capital, advice and programming, designed to support B2B software companies as they mature and scale.

Growth Capital

Riverside Acceleration Capital (RAC) takes a flexible investment approach, offering both growth equity and growth loans, so that our investment can serve the needs of our portfolio companies, and help fit their goals; not the other way around.

Growth Resources

Through direct engagement, our strategic advisory board, a specialized toolkit, the reach of our global platform, and even a purpose-built revenue acceleration software system, we support our portfolio companies with far more than capital.

Growth Experience

We’ve spent our careers in, and around, B2B software companies; we have a strategic advisory board filled with industry veterans; and we are part of a global investment firm with decades of experience growing hundreds of small businesses.

For B2B Software

You may have noticed a pattern. We specialize in B2B Software and we work closely with companies as they start to scale. RAC is structured to help companies accelerate their growth, seize expansion opportunities, and realize their potential.

Model

A long-term partner built to deliver the right capital at the right time.

Growth Equity

When go-to-market approach is solidified, alongside strong product-market fit – an equity round can quickly accelerate revenue growth against a large addressable market.

  • $5-25M round with $5-15M from RAC
  • Reserves for future investment
  • Paired with strategic resources, tools and systems via Growth Academy
  • Hands-on engagement from RAC & Riverside

Typical Investment:

Growth Lending

Through our version of revenue-based financing (RBF), RAC funds growth initiatives that are designed to maximize shareholder value, without setting a valuation or diluting ownership, control or optionality.

We Look For:

  • B2B software businesses
  • $2-15M ARR with 20%+ growth
  • Capital efficient growth
  • Good retention & strong
    unit economics

Typical Investment:

  • $1-5M non-dilutive loan – no valuation or upfront equity
  • Tight alignment through capped revenue share approach
  • 5-year time-horizon seeking to maximize investability
  • RAC takes a lead-investor approach and leverages our Growth Academy to help companies realize their vision
Growth Academy

Programming, tools and advice designed to smartly accelerate B2B software growth.

The Growth Academy is the overarching program designed to provide both learning and expertise across the RAC portfolio to support our companies in their growth initiatives.
