Bolstr Overview

While they don't offer equity investments, Chicago-based Bolstr does offer something more interesting (and more flexible for the borrower) than just a vanilla loan, which is a revenue share agreement with the borrower, who agrees to share a percentage of revenues (from 1-6%) until a specified multiple of the original investment is reached. Loans are also secured with both a personal guarantee from the borrower, and a security interest in the business itself.

In addition to individual investments, you can choose an automated investment feature, though it requires an initial commitment to at least 10 loans, so at least $50,000 .Bolstr positions themselves as a "borrower-first" lender, and their website reflects that, with plenty of info on how they stack up against both traditional lenders like banks and the SBA, as well as more modern merchant lenders like OnDeck and Kabbage.
