When we founded Percent in 2018, we did so on the belief that investing in private credit should be more transparent, accessible, and standardized. We didn’t want to be just another alternative investing platform. We wanted to be the platform organizing the multi-trillion-dollar world of private debt capital markets.
In less than four years, we brought investors over $500 million in asset-based private credit opportunities across 270+ deals. Thousands of investors use Percent every day, and we are proud to add exclusive new borrower partners to our platform every month.
Yet after many successes and learnings in the private credit space, we felt it only right to not only provide more opportunities for investors, but build a foundation for future companies like Percent: fast-growing, venture equity-backed companies in finance and beyond, all creating a better, more organized, and much more transparent future for their industry.
This is why we are proud to announce our launch of Venture Investing on Percent.
Venture debt is a fast growing, $150 billion+ market filled with high-growth venture equity-backed companies — companies like Percent. Yet these companies have been historically serviced exclusively by only a handful of banks and institutional lenders at times when they need capital the most.
We at Percent believe a thriving, transparent market can help these innovative businesses raise the growth capital they need without giving up material ownership in their ideas and innovation. With Venture Investing, we are now a platform that can help raise this capital for businesses, while providing investors exposure not just to high yielding, short-term investment opportunities, but investments in the businesses shaping our future. As always, our market-based pricing, transparency, deal standardization, and full-service customer support — the hallmarks of our private credit offerings — are standard with Venture Investing.
This addition to Percent is an exciting step forward for our platform, and a giant leap closer to our vision of becoming the way lending happens. Let’s build our future, together.
