GrowthCap Deal and Research Platform Launches with $50M of Deals in Market

NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- GrowthCap announced today the launch of its private equity deal platform where established private companies can raise growth capital from institutional investors and family offices.  The platform opens with over $50 million of live deals in market.  GrowthCap is the first of its kind, offering companies a complete end-to-end capital raising solution by combining its platform technology with highly experienced professional deal execution.

Founded by RJ Lumba, who made his career raising over $2 billion for private companies while working for leading investment banks and economic development firms, GrowthCap was created to dramatically reduce the amount of time, effort and cost typically involved in a capital raise process.  In 2012, there were over $350 billion in private company offerings, and 87% of issuers did not use an advisor or placement agent.  "The large majority of private companies choose to raise capital on their own and really struggle with the process over a period of several months," said Lumba.  "The process is all-consuming and completely distracting for company owners and executives.  We wanted to help solve this problem."

GrowthCap provides companies with two distinct services – investor research and deal management.  Its research includes information on over 3,000 institutional investors including hundreds of family offices.  "Until now, private company owners and executives simply did not have an easy way to identify all the relevant investors interested in their sector, geography and business stage, among other key attributes," said Lumba.  

While any company can access GrowthCap's investor research, only select companies will be approved for its deal management platform where institutional investors view investment opportunities.  Access to the platform is reserved for companies looking to raise between $10 million to more than $75 million and who meet certain key criteria pertaining to management team experience, financial history, projected growth, market dynamics, competitive advantage and operational strength.

Finding a more efficient means for private companies to raise capital has shifted into focus recently, especially with the passing of the JOBS Act and proliferation of different online funding platforms. "There are a variety of options available for those looking to raise early stage seed and angel funding, such as AngelList, but the more mature institutional growth capital market remains out of reach for the vast majority of companies, and existing solutions still center on the costly and time-consuming model of hiring a traditional investment banker," said Lumba.   

GrowthCap presents private companies with a new solution, providing a full suite of tools and professional assistance to efficiently connect with growth capital investors.
