Frequently Asked Questions
Am I qualified to get debt financing?
Most businesses are surprised by what they qualify for, but the amount and rates you get depend heavily on the maturity and scale of your business and if you have any physical assets or IP that can collateralized.
What are the fees?
Each lender is different when it comes to origination, closing, and interest fees. However, Thunder doesn’t charge you any direct fees. The lender pays Thunder a finders fee, thus providing you the most competitive rates compared to other brokers.
Should I even be considering debt in this market?
Debt is a faster and often cheaper capital source than raising equity. If you’re in growth mode and have predictable growth, debt is by far the best way to finance your business in most cases, from a cost and speed perspective. If you’re an earlier stage business with less predictability, then equity capital is probably more realistic to pursue.

Don't let us speak for ourselves, here's what our founders have to say
"It’s rare that you come across a standout personality like Jason. I had the pleasure of working with Jason while scaling our company, Elude. As a first time startup founder, fundraising and working with investors is apart of the job. I wish everyone of our investors was as helpful and direct as Jason! Jason's responsiveness & willingness to help allowed us to close our pre-seed and seed stage investments quickly. He also provided invaluable advice on ways to build the business and stand out. Outside of the investment, he continues to go above and beyond and has assisted with multiple network introductions and additional investor connections. We're thrilled to have Jason apart of the team and strongly recommend founders to work with him! We're happy to have someone so diligent on our side :)"
"I have had the privilege of working with Jason and the exceptional team at Thunder.vc, and I must say that it has revolutionized my fundraising journey. The tedious and time-consuming process of chasing after potential investors and enduring countless unproductive meetings has become a thing of the past. Thanks to Thunder.vc, I now have a streamlined vetting process that enables me to identify the most suitable investors based on my company's size and the check size they typically write."
"Jason & his team at Thunder.vc we're instrumental in helping us figure out and execute on our fundraising strategy. We spent countless hours pitching VCs with no request for a second meeting. Jason helped identify the problem in our messaging and repositioned us to target a whole new set of investors that led to us finally closing our round after months of failing to secure a VC. We plan to use Thunder again in our next raise."
