Evergreen funding

A British term referring to the gradual injection of capital into a new or existing enterprise.

Evergreen Funding

A situation in which a start-up receives funding in small amounts over a long period of time. This differs from an IPO or some venture capital investments, which tend to be large, one-time-only capital infusions. This tends to be a lower risk arrangement for those providing capital to the start-up, because if it fails in the meantime, no further capital infusions will be required.
