Hi, we’re Braavo

Braavo is creating a better model for app companies to receive funding for growth — one that arms developers and founders with insights to scale sustainably and capital to turn their vision into reality.

We’ve built a robust funding platform and a suite of powerful analytics tools that track and analyze app performance, enabling us to provide customized funding for companies of all sizes, stages, and categories.

Founders’ story

Co-founders Sergei Kovalenko and Mark Loranger met in 2014. The conversation began with a simple question: why are app businesses chasing the same type of investors as traditional tech companies?

As Sergei observed, the dynamics of the mobile app ecosystem — whether you’re building games or meditation apps — are dramatically different than those impacting other tech companies. For Sergei and Mark, this market presented the ultimate opportunity to challenge the mindset that entrepreneurs must raise massive amounts of equity to build successful startups. In the process, they hope to help shape the conversation around what success truly means.

Braavo officially launched in late 2015. Now offering two innovative financing products and powerful business intelligence software, Braavo delivers both the capital and the insights to transform mobile growth. By providing non-dilutive, yet scalable alternatives to equity, we’re helping founders retain control and optionality each step of the way. The result: better outcomes for founders, their teams, and the app ecosystem as a whole.
