A Twist On VC Investing

If you’re a bootstrapped company with $10,000/month in revenue and need some cash, you may want to look to Indie.vc.

Indie.vc claims to be a non-VC VC. They make small investments (now up to $500,000) in exchange for equity (~8%) if new shares are sold and cash flow equal to 7X the cash investment, but if the cash flow amount is reached sooner, the equity conversion rate will diminish.

These investors also provide some support in the form of quarterly retreats that include workshops and fireside chats and company reporting.
