What type of financing?

Loans are used to acquire business financing. The investor (lender) is obliged to repay principal and interest on the date or dates indicated in the loan agreement. Loan funding is for project initators who:
  • are willing to pay investors higher interest rates than banks
  • are ready to subject their business operations to expert judgment in exchange for omitting a long-term banking or bonding procedure
A typical loan financing on the Revofund Platform is an amount from 100,000. PLN to 1 million PLN. We help entrepreneurs spread their wings. Revofund enables you to get funding and allows you to focus on running your business. Shares are used to invest in limited liability companies. In exchange for financial resources, the investor receives corporate rights. The project initiator, by issuing shares, admits partners to whom he must ensure the implementation of the rights under the Commercial Companies Code and the investment agreement (partners’ agreements). The initiator must be aware of the owner restrictions as a consequence of acquiring new partners.
