    Cerebro Lending Marketplace


    Almost all Cerebro users have pre-existing lender relationships. Our process easily incorporates those lenders to maximize leverage or excludes those lenders depending on circumstances. The borrower always has full control over which lenders are engaged. 

    Banks and non-bank lenders across the middle market complete detailed profiles including information on their underwriting criteria. Cerebro’s algorithm cross-references a borrower’s company profile and finance request to the lender’s profile. Borrowers explicitly approve or veto matched lenders prior to deal launch. 

    Typical loan sizes range from $2MM on the low end to over $100MM on the high end. 

    No. It’s free for lenders to complete a lender profile and receive matched deal opportunities. This ensures Cerebro is not biased in which lenders are matched to borrowers. 

    Yes. Currently our algorithms are not yet designed for investment real estate or project finance. Most other industries are serviced on the network. 

    No. Startups are better candidates for venture capital and equity investors. Companies are not ready to raise debt capital until they have operating history. Since Cerebro only has debt providers on it’s network, we only work with established businesses.

    No. Cerebro’s Lender Network only lists debt providers. However, some non-bank debt providers such as mezzanine funds will seek warrants or equity sweeteners. These will a small portion of the loan structure. 

    Cerebro can help get in front of lenders in a matter of days. Our clients receive term sheets quickly after that. Closing timelines will vary greatly from 20-90 days depending on the type of lender and nature of the deal.
