A serial entrepreneur for 15 years in the tech and start-up world, Nima experienced early on the financing difficulties faced by the leaders of fast-growing digital start-ups. In 2020, after successfully selling his company Digital & You, a digital transformation consultancy, Nima and Greg embarked on the Silvr adventure with one objective: to support digital entrepreneurs and help them create their own success story.

Our story

Silvr was born out of a common observation made by Nima and Greg: when you are a digital entrepreneur, there are many challenges to take up to guarantee your growth and its continuity.

One of the biggest, financing, is what we wanted to address first. By offering European entrepreneurs a new financing option with a model "as a service" — the Revenue Based Financing (RBF) — we initiated a new way of operating for digital entrepreneurs. We now allow them to get funded quickly while keeping 100% of their capital, with a repayment plan based on their revenue to meet their need for flexibility and speed.

As a data-driven company, we are a trustworthy partner for founders, and we aim to be a facilitator for them through all stages of their growth. We use data to create tailor-made solutions that allow founders to finance themselves, analyze their company's performance and create their ecosystem of business partners.

Our mission

Our mission at Silvr is to give digital entrepreneurs all the keys to ensure their success.

By relying on technology, we created a toolbox adapted to the needs and business models of digital companies so they can focus on the essential: their project, their development, their prospects, and clients.

As a growth partner, we support ambitious founders every day in reaching their goals; by facilitating access to financing, but also via the creation of a true partner ecosystem around them.

By facilitating their access to financing, but also the creation of a real ecosystem of partners around them, Silvr relies on technology to provide all digital entrepreneurs with the toolbox for their success.
