Searching for the right capital provider, in many ways, is like searching for a perfect mate. It can be highly emotional and confusing, and turn into a second full-time job.

While such interest is flattering, the endless funding choices available to companies can be, at times, overwhelming and almost always distracting.

A new breed of entrepreneurs is redefining business models, creating disruptive technologies and raising the bar when it comes to solving customers’ problems. In today’s environment of constant reinvention, selecting the right financing partner is a critical decision for any company at an inflection point.
