Step by Step
When You Need a Banker, Not Just a Bank
With roots in the Silicon Valley, our bankers understand the business banking tools and solutions tech entrepreneurs and startups need throughout all stages of the growth cycle.
Mike Lederman of Bridge Bank's Technology Banking Group joined the Founders & Friends podcast to talk about common challenges tech companies face when they look for a banking resource. Listen as they discuss how a bank with experience in the sector can be an advantage to technology companies by providing unique lending solutions, making connections to other resources, and more.
Working Capital Lines of Credit. This flexible revolving line of credit may be utilized to support increasing assets in a growing company. Lines may be formula-based or non-formula-based depending upon your business needs, and may help conserve cash and improve relationships with suppliers.
Equipment Financing. Bridge Bank provides term loans to finance purchase of equipment, acquisition of product lines or business operations, tenant or leasehold improvements, permanent additions to working capital, and to refinance existing debt.
Bridge Loans. Bridge loans provide short-term working capital that will bridge a company to a well-defined liquidity/equity event.
Growth Capital/Venture Debt. Venture debt allows companies to leverage their equity capital while adding “runway,” thereby providing the dual benefit of reduced dilution and the potential to achieve greater step-ups in valuation between equity rounds. Venture debt provides flexibility not found with investors.
Corporate Credit Cards. A line of credit can be established for the purpose of issuing individual corporate credit cards. This allows for effective control of corporate purchases, travel and entertainment expenses and provides management complete flexibility in issuing and canceling cards as needed.
Asset-Based Lending Solutions. In keeping with our mission to accommodate a client’s unique needs, we offer asset-based lending in addition to traditional corporate banking solutions.
