Recur Club, IVY Growth Associates to allocate up to $10M in non-dilutive growth capital
Recur Club, a fintech platform that provides capital to companies with recurring revenues, said it has joined hands with IVY Growth Associates, which invests in and mentors startups, to allocate up to $10 million in non-dilutive growth capital for the latter’s portfolio companies.
“This comes at a time when the macroeconomic conditions are uncertain, which has resulted in higher interest rates and less liquidity, which in turn, has led to low venture capital equity or investors pushing companies for down rounds,” said Eklavya Gupta, Founder and Co-CEO at Recur Club. He attributed the increased interest in non-dilutive financing solutions such as Recur Club to these factors.
Recur Club with IVY Growth associates will target investing in about 500 startups by the end of 2027.
