Founding Sponsors

Currency Capital

At Currency, we're changing what's possible in the equipment finance marketplace. Our mission is to streamline the equipment funding ecosystem so businesses can achieve financing simplicity. Every day we work together to originate, process and close high-quality transactions through an ecosystem of buyers (providing instant, competitive options), sellers (enabling them to sell more equipment) and banks (delivering cost-efficient access to deal flow).

On the heels of the Great Recession, businesses around the country found themselves left behind. Commercial banks just weren't lending, and when they were, the delays between application and funding were far too long. So a group of financial experts, along with a few tech wizards, decided to take action. We engineered a technology that streamlined both approval and funding by getting a more complete financial picture at the beginning of the application process. The result was Currency, and since then we've helped support businesses with more than $500 million in loans. For information, visit http://www.currencycap.com.
