ESCP (Early Stage Capital Providers)ESCPs are investment vehicles that typically manage ≤$20M and invest with $50K–500K with an ‘equity mindset’ into early stage companies that have the ability to grow. Given these characteristics, ESCPs play a unique role in entrepreneurial and financing ecosystems – they take high risk to nurture companies to the point at which later stage investors can invest to scale. They fill an important gap in the capital value chain because the type of company in focus is often too large for microfinance and lacks the profile required for traditional venture capital. Because of ESCPs, early-stage businesses can access a source of value-added capital without a fully validated business model and a long track record.
