Our Mission

The Internet changes everything. Growth funding shouldn't be an exception.

Business building has certainly changed with the advent of modern cloud paradigms. These platforms have shifted the way products are built and companies are scaled, simultaneously offering reduced technology risk with improved capital efficiency. As a result, today’s software companies are scaling faster than ever before, against an ever broadening set of market opportunities. Yet, despite these innovations in business building, funding innovation has not kept pace.

We believe there remains a time for traditional venture models, but that often an alternative is needed. Riverside Acceleration Capital gives companies the capital needed to grow their business, launch new products and maximize value without diluting ownership, control, or optionality. We do so by delivering the right amount of capital at the right stages of growth and development. Our unique model and backing help us to support our companies across their entire lifecycle.

Our Team

We are software specialists, passionate investors, and entrepreneurs at heart.
