Extend your runway, accelerate growth without dilution, and increase your strategic flexibility.
We like Espresso because they’re not a classical lender. They were easy to work with, got things done fast, and were able to structure a facility that complemented the bank line we already had in place. This facility gives us tremendous flexibility ahead of going to market to raise our Series C.

Espresso was a great partner. Not only do we share a common philosophy around the importance of investing for growth, Espresso also brings significant investment experience to the table that ultimately helped better position us for a great exit.
Espresso really listens. They knew what was most important to us and demonstrated great flexibility in their model to create a win-win deal for everyone. They’ve been great to work with and we appreciate that they take a long-term, relationship-first approach to partnering.

Working with the Espresso team was very efficient. It was a very professional and supportive relationship, both in terms of the initial phase of getting the deal done, and every step of the way since. We were able to move very quickly and get the capital we needed to bridge us to our Series C.
Founder and CEO, Q4 Inc.
Even before we partnered with Espresso, I was impressed with how helpful they were. Sure, they provide non-dilutive growth capital, but to me what really stands out about Espresso is the fact that they’re not just lenders. They know how to diagnose the problems a company has and then connect founders to the resources they need to fix them.
Founder and CEO, HomeStars
The team at Espresso just gets it. They understand the challenges that SaaS companies like ours face and the resources that we need. They were able to offer us a facility that meets our unique require- ments and that will power our growth as we continue to scale.
Founder and CEO, KeyedIn
By partnering with Espresso, we were able to grow our business, fund a major merger, and ultimately reach the scale we needed to secure a large equity round.
Co-founder and CEO, Fullscript
Espresso gave us a way to get the capital we needed so that we could delay raising our Series C until we were in a better position and could command a higher valuation.
The moment we got to know Espresso, we knew we were in good hands. They gave us the capital we needed to grow our business when other investors wouldn’t. Thanks to their help, we’ve been able to maintain control of the business and chart our own course.
