  • Pinnacle Ventures is a private venture capital fund focused on providing debt and equity financing to early-stage companies. We typically initiate our relationship with an investment in the form of a growth capital or an equipment loan. Over time, we also plan on investing additional debt and equity capital in our portfolio companies. Value of Venture Debt Pinnacle initiates a relationship with a startup as early as possible, typically with a venture debt loan and ideally shortly after it receives its first round of venture capital financing. Pinnacle provides these early-stage companies with an efficient form of financing that is materially less dilutive than straight equity. Pinnacle’s investments do not have any financial covenants or restrictions, giving the company true cash runway and maximum flexibility. The additional cash runway provided by our capital allows a startup the necessary time to achieve key additional milestones before its next financing. Achieving additional milestones will result in a higher valuation and a more successful next round of financing, thereby lowering ownership dilution for the current stakeholders. In certain cases, our capital also provides the resources for a startup to become cash flow positive. Broad Range of Products Pinnacle provides various types of capital, including growth capital loans, equipment loans, accounts receivable financing, subordinated debt, convertible debt, MA financing and direct equity investments. By utilizing our financing products, investors, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders can optimize their financing strategy benefiting all constituents. We focus on investing in both technology and healthcare sectors. Our typical initial investment ranges from $500,000 to as much as $15 million. In conjunction with the initial investment, we also reserve for potential future investments and follow-on fundings in each individual portfolio company. Experienced Team The Pinnacle investment team has a variety of experience and a broad mix of skills, ranging from operating roles at startups and large technology firms to venture equity, technology lending and investment banking. With this mix of skills, Pinnacle takes a balanced approach to making its investments. We examine each opportunity based on a variety of factors and make clear investment decisions in a timely manner. This approach allows us to assist our portfolio companies throughout their various phases of growth. Our experience also enables us to leverage our extensive network and relationships in order to find the best opportunities and partner with the top firms and people. Creativity in Structuring and Responsiveness The Pinnacle investment team has direct experience in managing and financing startups and, therefore, understands their needs. Pinnacle works with early-stage companies to creatively structure financing packages in order to meet their near and long term goals. Pinnacle’s structures provide maximum flexibility and have no restrictive covenants. Our thoughtful approach saves a startup time during and after the transaction. We utilize a quick and easy documentation process during the transaction, and we continue helping the company on an ongoing and responsive basis thereafter. Focus on Adding Value to the Portfolio Pinnacle focuses on providing value above and beyond our capital. In concert with the management and venture investors’ contacts, Pinnacle uses its own network to aid the startup in its pursuit of operational needs such as critical services and introductions to beta customers and executive staff candidates. We also assist in providing valuable guidance with respect to a company’s financial requirements and strategies, including providing introductions to potential future investors. Additionally, Pinnacle has relationships with equipment providers, which include pre-negotiated discounts and support services. Long Term, Disciplined Mindset Pinnacle looks to invest in...
