Raise capital

When companies raise capital outside of the traditional banking channel, thus diversifying their financing sources, they can count on capital that meet their same medium-long term needs and cover their growth plans, besides improving their visibility with clients and providers.

Epic represents a bridge between companies seeking capital to finance their growth plans and investors seeking a new asset class to enhance their portfolios’ yield: this is reached through a digital platform and a streamlined process.  Investments can be in form of private debt (minibond), equity, or direct lending (institutional investors only).

Raise capital up to EUR 5M

A bond is not always the most appropriate solution to the medium-long term financial needs of a company. This is particularly true when the company's project requires an investment amount between 1 and 5 million Euros.

For such cases Epic opens the direct lending channel. This means loans supplied by funds or specialized banks. It is a bilateral form of credit, faster and with a simpler process (compared to issuing a bond), which gives companies a tangible support to their growth. 

With direct lending transactions speed is of the utmost importance: thanks to technology, Epic can perform a thorough credit risk analysis based on annual reports and data from the Central Credit Register. The credit risk analysis results are presented in a template document that helps and quickens the decision process with the lender. The document contents include a credit risk scoring, the company's history, the availability of a public guarantee and a forecast of data development based on different scenarios.
