We are DRVE
Our programs help fund your growth without having to sell a piece of your business. We provide capital to drive your revenue to new heights at our risk, on our bill making it effortless for you. Want to know more about DRVE and our work? Here are our Frequently Asked Questions:
DRVE has a unique approach that provides capital to drive the growth of our program partners’ companies. For our capital, a revenue share is charged as we take no equity and have no hidden fees. We can deploy up to $50,000 per day or advance up to $500,000 towards your paid digital marketing budget.
Our focus at DRVE is to boost online sales growth, leaving offline sales solely attributable to our partners. However, every partner on our programs has experienced success offline via bricks-and-mortar sales or attention from distributors/retailers, as an added bonus to DRVE’s digital reach.
We currently only provide financing for companies with a physical or virtual product. If your business is not within these categories, we do currently not have a program in place to support you, but check back soon as we expand.

DRVE has a global mindset that has enabled us to reach and succeed in markets across the world over. Our experience and know-how make us an ideal partner to conquer new markets and execute regional expansion while achieving actual online sales growth.
DRVE connects with key eCommerce channels and platforms, algorithmically determining how much capital we can confidently allocate towards your paid digital marketing campaigns.
Repayment is made from your future business revenue. A percentage of each transaction is applied towards repaying the advance until it is repaid in full. There is no set repayment date, as we understand your business can fluctuate throughout the year.
The repayment percentage typically is between 1% to 35% of future revenue to keep a healthy cash flow in your day to day operations and depending on the program you are in. We work with you to determine a rate that will be beneficial for everyone.
