i2B Capital, is headquartered in old town Fort Collins, CO where design inspiration for Disneyland’s Main Street USA originated. Fort Collins is ranked #2 in the country in high tech start-up density and was featured in the Smithsonian this past summer as one of the country’s “Places of Innovation”. That innovation and start-up mentality is what encouraged i2B to go from Main Street to Wall Street and bring back institutional capital for Main Street’s growing businesses. i2B Capital or “Institutional to Business Capital” is a specialty finance focused fund that provides direct investments of senior secured growth capital, acquisition capital and joint ventures for specialty finance entrepreneurs and special asset situations. We believe that there are well managed, technology enabled companies backed by family offices, high net worth individuals, or private equity firms. Our borrowers are specialty finance entrepreneurs that are growing, pre-bankable, too small, too early or in asset classes that aren’t yet understood. Our customers are often pursuing new assets classes likely excluded in a current borrowing base agreement making it difficult to serve current growth demand for their finance programs. Our founders have built their reputation on pioneering new assets classes, new markets internationally, innovative structures and spending the time to understand opportunities others simply won’t.
The i2B Difference
i2B can provide senior debt or purchase assets directly alongside our clients. This flexibility allows us to do more than just traditional financing or just being an asset buyer. We have joint venture partner opportunities that allows our clients to benefit from our both our capital and direct marketing across a broad spectrum of financing solutions.
Many specialty finance investors have never operated a specialty finance company and are challenged to understand the operational nuances needed to be successful. i2B’s management brings over 25 years of entrepreneurial finance experience as operators in both technology and finance combined with over 25 years of commercial asset based lending experience to uniquely assist our clients in achieving both scale and preparing them to achieve their next level of funding.
We believe that the underserved market needs lie between $3 and $15 million and we can close transactions up to $20 million without syndication. i2B provides flexible structures, including a hybrid revolving line of credit, term loans or we can invest in assets directly through a special purpose vehicle (SPV). Our programs are dedicated to get your company to an institutional level of performance and scale. Our funding commitments are 12-24 months with a 24-36-month amortization or run off. With offices in Fort Collins and Washington DC, we service a national and international footprint.
We look forward to the opportunity to bring Wall Street capital to your Main Street business. We invite you to experience the difference of working with entrepreneurs that understand your business.
