Bridge Financing

Bridge Financing is temporary funding for when a startup is running out of cash and needs an infusion of capital to operate the company until the company can raise permanent capital in the form of equity or debt. Bridge financing is typically a six to twelve-month promissory note that converts to preferred stock. The notes usually give an option to the lender to convert the note at a twenty to twenty-five percent discount from the permanent capital.
