“BizCap always provides viable solutions, they never come up empty and the deals presented are always sound, realistic and very competitive. The two executives that I have worked with, Mr. Chuck Doyle and Mr. Reed Upson, are both extremely hardworking, dedicated, and very honest. When these men agree to take on a project, they follow it all the way through to a successful closing.” — Frank Vezer, CEO
“As a successful foreign company, we entered the US market rather naively believing our New Zealand/Australian track record would carry weight. Reality was very different. Primary funding institutions place little value on offshore successes and are averse to risk. This challenge threatened our growth. A fortuitous introduction to Bizcap proved a godsend. They liked our business model and secured a finance partner that understood our company and was able to meet both our short and long term funding requirements.”
— Chris Alpe, President, Founder and Principal, JUCY Group Ltd.
“As private equity investors, we prefer our portfolio company CEOs maintain their focus on running the business. While mission critical, the capital raising process is time intensive and can impair management’s ability to execute in the meantime. We have engaged BizCap on several occasions, and they have capably augmented our management teams during the capital raising process, allowing us to continue driving value in our businesses. We feel the value of a strong team to lead us through the highly competitive and relentless nature of the capital raising process is compelling. We frequently turn to Chuck and his team at BizCap for our needs.”
–Ed McNulty, Managing Partner, Central Valley Fund
“Given the growth financing needs of our business—and the relatively short tenure of our company—it was difficult securing credit from local banks and financial institutions, this despite strong assets, cash-flow, and significant net equity on our balance sheet. These local banks kept telling us they very badly wanted to provide us financing—backed by significant collateral, of course—only to turn around and ask us for one more document or piece of information. BizCap cut through all of this banking fog for us and brought our company several financial institutions and banks that could provide our company’s financing needs in a timely, efficient, and professional manner. We are truly grateful for BizCap’s help and expertise. It has been an absolute pleasure working with BizCap and its entire team of professionals.”
–Anthony Mello, CEO, Wholesome Nut Company
“Reed Upson and the entire team at BizCap were a pleasure to work with during our recent transition to a new banking relationship for our expanding US operations. It was a true partnership that worked flawlessly through the entire process. The integrity, availability and guidance provided by the BizCap team was invaluable in closing the deal on time. Thank you team BizCap for delivering on all of your promises.”
–Srinivas Potluri, CEO, Kellton Tech Solutions
“A big thank-you to the BizCap Team, a true partner! Their expertise is clear and, what I have appreciated the most, is their willingness to mentor and guide us through the process from beginning to end. Due to the complexity and tight deadlines of the deal, we definitely would not have been able to close the deal without Biz Cap. Reed Upson was stellar, supporting key elements of the deal on our behalf when my plate was full.”
— Julie Reynosa, CFO, Rancho Harvest
“Business Capital was incredibly helpful with our recent acquisition. I turned to them after the initial financing structure failed and, within a matter of weeks, they were able to coordinate a rigorous process resulting in successful financing. The Business Capital team was always responsive and highly professional and the Managing Director, Chuck Doyle, remained personally involved and accessible throughout the transaction. Overall, their knowledge and domain expertise shaved months off of the process and, most likely, saved the deal. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Business Capital and hope to work with them again on my next deal which is already in process.”
-– David Cumberbatch, President & CEO, ECS Learning Systems

— Sarah Dusek, Co-Founder, Under Canvas
“Many thanks to the BizCap Team for the fantastic job helping AlterG close two new lenders for our business. When no bank was interested in taking on the challenge of our refinancing, BizCap jumped in and 1 month, secured multiple term sheets from credible lenders. In fact, when we closed both lending agreements I couldn’t believe how low the fees were for their efforts. Especially after going through the diligence and closing process together. Looking forward to doing more business together as our financing needs arise.”
— Charles Remsberg, CEO, AlterG, Inc.
“I recently met with a client who had lost all hope. This client’s incumbent bank did not want to renew their existing line of credit and the debt service was severely affecting liquidity, the client thought their only alternative was to file bankruptcy. I recommended that they talk to the Business Capital team before we moved ahead with the filing . The Business Capital team was able to recommend a different loan structure, identify and monetize under-reported assets to secure Sr. as well as Jr. capital take out financing for the client.. amazing! The Client is thriving, and jobs were saved due to the effort of the Business Capital team.”
— Stephen O’Neill, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney

— Bill Brinkman, Partner, Jigsaw Advisors
“I have represented lenders that have made loans to clients of Business Capital on multiple occasions. Each of these borrowers had quite complex debt capital structures with several layers of secured and unsecured debt. I was extremely impressed by the way the Business Capital team prepared its clients as credit takers, guided them through the loan process, and managed their expectations every step of the way. BizCap also did a remarkable job of bringing together the various debt holder constituencies to ensure that everyone was working efficiently and harmoniously, so that the transactions could close smoothly and timely. Simply put, the Business Capital team really knows how to get deals done and I hope to have the opportunity to work with them again soon!”

It became clear early on that BizCap had the right bank in mind for us and we were pleasantly surprised to see the haste in which both moved to make things happen. Throughout the process, we leaned on the Business Capital team’s experience and input to ensure the terms presented to us were in our best interest.

They put the right amount of fire under everyone involved to ultimately help us get the exact amount of funding in the time-frame we needed.”

“Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Chuck Doyle and the Business Capital team on a distressed refinancing. The borrower had been financed by a notoriously difficult hedge fund lender that was looking to exit the market after the loan matured. It seemed like an impossible situation until BizCap got involved. They quickly established credibility with the lender, canvassed the market, and put together a financing package that the client was very pleased with.”

I am currently working with them on other opportunities.”
Jeff Arambel, Farmer/Land Developer

Our needs did not match the portfolio goals of Business Capital, but that didn’t stop them from helping. Within days, they referred us to multiple partners within their network and we were able to get the capital we needed in a competitive environment.
