We’re a different kind of lender. At Espresso, we provide the capital you want with the flexibility you need. We empower companies with innovative venture debt and growth financing solutions.
Our history begins in 2009, when two former software entrepreneurs launched Espresso to help start-ups finance growth using non-dilutive financing. In the more than a decade since, we’ve grown to become a leading provider of venture debt solutions in the United States and Canada. With offices in Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago, and Montreal, today we offer non-dilutive growth capital to leading companies in technology, healthcare, and other high-growth verticals.
Over our more than 10-year history, we have partnered with hundreds of companies and their investors, helping them to accelerate growth, extend the funding runway, reduce cost of capital, and minimize dilution. Although our business has evolved over the years, many of our founding principles remain the same. That includes our commitment to being founder friendly. We believe that as businesses scale, they need a financing partner that works like they do. For us, that means being fast, fair, and flexible, while delivering the best experience possible.
We lend to high-growth technology companies in the United States, Canada, and the UK that provide mission-critical core operations and other high-value solutions to customers.
