I'm the Head of Finance at a family-owned and operated California-based environmental abatement business. We are growing rapidly (~50% YoY) and have been approached by search funds over the years.

While the owners have thought about selling, the CEO and I are convinced we can grow 4x from here. To achieve this we are seeking advice on securing funding primarily for working capital (AR) and some CapEx, the second objective would be to provide some liquidity to the current shareholders.

Who should we talk to and/or what options should we consider? What creative financing options have you seen for businesses in similar situations? Happy to connect and discuss.
