Beltone SME offers innovative, tailor-made financing to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
Through our experience, we have learned that combining financing with business support is imperative to help sustain and grow your business.
Since business support is as integral as access to capital for SMEs, we offer our portfolio companies a wide range of services aimed at facilitating access to expertise, information and market linkages.
Our Flagship product, Revenue Based Financing (RBF), offers risk capital to small and medium sized businesses
in exchange for rights to a percentage of future revenues for a specified period of time.
We work with several sectors, industries, and specifically entrepreneurs in high-growth markets, looking for ways to finance their businesses without giving up equity.
We are currently offering investments ranging from EGP2mn-25mn (including follow-up investments) in growth capital to qualified companies.
