  • Overview: Polus Capital focuses on B2B companies that sell tech-enabled or managed services in healthcare and information-intensive industries. The most appropriate users of entrepreneur-friendly capital are companies with high gross margins, that generate $5M – $15M in annual revenue, are profitable, and have grown at >15% for several years. Your growth is consuming most of your income, but with more cash you have a clear path to seize a big opportunity. Polus offers a desirable option for business owners who want capital, deserve capital, but do not need capital. You want the capital to help fuel growth, but are loathe to give up a lot of equity at a cheap price, or deal with onerous short-term private debt terms. You deserve the capital because yours is a real business with success and a track record, but somehow is not a fit for what banks, PE, VC, and debt firms are structured to fund. When they were running businesses like yours, they found traditional capital options undesirable. Now that they live on the other side, they decided to create a capital option they would have liked to use. They started by developing an innovative return structure for the Limited Partners (LP) who provide us capital because that structure is really the limitation for all investment managers. Polus’ structure is different than traditional VC, PE, and debt funds. Polus’ LP return structure allows us to be fair and flexible with entrepreneurs. By “fair,” they mean that if you do well, they do well. If you do not do well, they do not do well. By “flexible” they mean that you are not forced to sell your company, or do it on their timeline. You have space to scale your business because they avoid burdensome covenants. They do not demand a Board seat or preferences that can take control away from you.
