Why Revenue Sharing?
Unlike traditional lending, which rarely meets the needs of small businesses, the revenue sharing note offered by Mainvest was purpose-built for brick and mortar businesses. The RSN aligns the incentives of local investors with the success of the business, providing greater support and investment. It's also a more flexible and less restrictive option that offers subordinated debt without requiring personal guarantees.
In short, the revenue sharing note is the better choice for small businesses seeking financial support. Read more about how investment crowdfunding is the future of small business finance here.
