Why our investors like us.

Private credit is an important part of our family office investment strategy, and we like Espresso specifically because of the inherent downside protection in its loans. Espresso’s venture debt strategy has proven itself out over more than a decade, including during challenging economic times. We recommend Espresso to investors seeking both capital preservation and superior-risk adjusted returns.

Brice Scheschuk

Managing Partner, Globalive Capital

Espresso has one of the best teams in the business. Not only did I come to them when I needed capital to grow my business, I’ve also since entrusted them with my own personal funds. They have a great track record of delivering very attractive returns.

Nancy Peterson

Founder and CEO, Homestars

As a founder, I worked hard to make my money. With Espresso, I know that I’m not only able to preserve my capital, but also keep it growing. Plus, I take satisfaction in knowing that the money I’m investing is helping other founders just like me build their businesses.
