How Excedr Helped Jake Glanville, CEO @Centivax @Distributed Bio, Reach a Major Milestone

"We used Excedr when it was time for us to make a large capital equipment purchase and the whole leasing process was smooth, quick, and seamless.

As a busy start-up CEO, I am always aware of how important it is to keep our science progressing while on a tight budget.

Working with Excedr made it possible for us to accelerate our scientific discovery pipeline without a large outlay of capital."

"Building a biotech is a lot of work. Excedr has been a dynamite partner in making that scaling happen.

They were a great partner when scaling my last startup from an 8 member lab team to 35 members by the time of acquisition. When I sold Distributed Bio and I started Centivax, Jon was one of the first people I called.

I recommend them for any biotech startup."

The lease of our Zeiss EVO10 electron microscope has significantly impacted our outside analysis costs, realizing a significant savings in the 1st year.

Having the instrument on-site has greatly improved our response times to field issues and fabrication challenges, while improving our Engineering and Production Teams' overall understanding of our product lines."

"Excedr helped us to finance a BLI system about a year ago. Sylvia did an excellent job at helping us to understand our options, since our company was new to equipment financing.

The leasing process was fast and easy when compared with self-funding our purchase, plus the speed and ease with which Excedr onboarded us freed up our team’s time to focus on research and grant management.

Reduce Upfront Costs & Extend Cash Runway

Get the equipment you need now, while spreading your costs out over up to 5 years.

With the extra cash on hand, you can reinvest in high ROI initiatives, such as R&D, hiring, business development, sales, marketing, and more.

Spreading the cost of equipment over time will improve your cash flow and give you a safety net of cash for unexpected expenses.

Minimize Equipment Downtime

Minimizing equipment downtime is absolutely critical. When you have a deadline, an unexpected breakdown can often derail your progress, leading to missed deliverables and milestones.

We’re here to help. We cover repairs and maintenance with every lease. With full coverage, and Excedr’s VIP relationships with manufacturers and field service, you won’t miss a beat.

Get the Exact Equipment You Need

Every laboratory has different needs and preferences when it comes to equipment. That’s why we don’t carry an inventory.

Instead, as a seasoned non-dilutive capital provider and credit investor, we help you secure the exact equipment you need by financing the instrument’s purchase cost and leasing it directly to your business.
