About Element SaaS Finance

One of the challenges we faced in growing and scaling our SaaS companies was getting bank financing—this is why we started our own debt fund.

Why we created Element SaaS Finance

Our companies needed funding to grow

We work with talented SaaS CEOs through our sister company, Scaleworks. Our CEOs told us that they had exciting ideas for growing their companies, but needed funding to implement.

We quickly learned banks don’t get SaaS

Traditional banks won’t lend to companies that don’t make profits or have tangible assets. Banks don’t understand that SaaS recurring revenue is its own asset—instead, they ask for a personal guarantee.

We started lending to our own companies

We created our own debt fund so our companies could access finance. Our companies used this funding to grow through sales and marketing, acquisitions and more.

We know more SaaS companies need this

We wanted other SaaS companies to have access to smart funding that doesn’t require giving up control of your company. Element loans do just that.

We are SaaS operators with a track record of success

We are SaaS operators

We have a history in SaaS, with a combined experience of over 50 years in operating. Scaleworks is our current home, where we have been buying and building SaaS companies for the last 5 years.

How our companies operate

Scaleworks companies generate the majority of their revenue on a recurring basis. We are vertical agnostic.

We focus on what matters

We believe in real business building. A lot of time gets spent overcomplicating things, which gets you bogged down in the weeds, we focus on the important stuff.
