Capchase is an unusual fintech. The business model of this startup is to finance other startups, but not all of them; only companies with Saas model (software as a service) in growth phase and with recurring revenue. A feature that differentiates them from other technology companies.
“These companies tend to grow very fast and need capital to reinvest and continue growing, but, although they know they have a predictable monthly income, they cannot access that money because it is tied to future subscription payments,” explains Luis Basagoiti, one of the four founding partners of the fintech.
The executive stresses that Capchase allows Saas startups to fund themselves through their own operations before opening up to outside capital in exchange for selling a percentage of the company. The fintech estimates that companies that opt for this alternative delay funding rounds by up to eight months and arrive at those funding rounds on more favorable terms, saving founders an average of 16% in dilution.

ERP in SaaS or using software as a service is quite widespread nowadays. The technological democratization that we talk so much about due to -among other things- digital transformation has been driven to a great extent thanks to the implementation of this type of marketing and technological consumption models.
I believe that SaaS is also interesting for those companies in which outsourcing is successfully practiced. And not all SMEs have the outsourcing philosophy or culture imprinted in their DNA, which is very respectable, because each organization invents and reinvents as it sees fit. Companies that are used to outsourcing as much as they can will be more likely to outsource – or, to put it colloquially – to also rent software as if it were just another service.

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software billing and distribution model far superior to the traditional license sales model, so much so that it ends up restructuring companies around the model itself. This need for restructuring has led to SaaS companies having to rely on a set of practices and methodologies that are very specific and different from traditional models. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs discover this set of practices in an unpleasant way: repeating, over and over again, the same mistakes that others have made before, instead of investing their pool of blunders in making new (and better) mistakes.
Customers love SaaS because it works well. You usually don’t have to install anything to access the system. Hardware failures and operating errors, extraordinarily common on computers that are not professionally maintained, no longer result in significant data loss. SaaS companies achieve availability rates (i.e., the percentage of time during which software can be accessed and functions properly) considerably higher than the figures that can be achieved by almost any IT department or any IT person.
