Partnering with Espresso made total sense. Not only were they a great fit for us culturally given that the firm was founded by tech entrepreneurs, their terms were also significantly better than what the UK market can offer.

Partnering with Espresso has been fantastic. They had the best term sheet, stuck to their word, and conducted their process efficiently. We appreciate that working with them was simple and straightforward.

Jeff White

Anthony and the CREtelligent team have built a phenomenal business that is entering its next stage of growth. Their ability to postpone a large dilutive equity raise by tapping into Espresso Capital’s innovative financing facility will result in significantly increased value for all shareholders. 

Lokesh Sikaria

Working with Espresso has been a great experience. It’s an excellent team and one that instantly made us feel comfortable. We’ll definitely expand our partnership over time as we look to further grow the business both organically and through strategic acquisitions.

Espresso’s team did an extraordinary job of understanding our market, company, and business plan. They moved expeditiously to get the facility in place so we didn’t miss a beat.  

Anthony Romano

CEO, CREtelligent

In addition to offering a favorable cost of capital that will help better position us for a potential equity round in the future, we were impressed with the care the Espresso team took to get to know our business and the speed at which they were able to close the facility.

Will Seippel
