Capital-as-a-Service?

Abstract

The global financial crisis of 2007-2008 changed the landscape of financing a business, affecting all projects that are looking for growth based on access to capital. Non-bank finance and new forms of equity access started to emerge not only for attractive born-global start-ups but also for smaller SME´s with sound and sustainable business plans, creating a stronger link between capital and knowledge. This article aims to open a reflection on the future of the sources of financing for an entrepreneur, focusing on three main premises: (i) debt and short term payback, (ii) capital and knowledge acquisition for a sustainable business model (iii) new forms of – debt free - payback to fit the business ability to grow and to focus the financial support primarily on the business model and not on the entrepreneur.
