Coulton Creek Capital partners with solid owners and operators to support their business growth and enhance their success. Established in 2013 to fill an underserved market, Coulton Creek was formed with the vision of providing capital to enterprises looking to raise between $0.5 million and $5.0 million per investment.

We are unique as an investor. Our Managing Director and investment committee members have built companies from start-ups through rapid growth and successful exits. We understand the challenges of growing a business and the desire to limit equity dilution. As a private investment firm, we have the flexibility to provide a wide range of solutions and the ability to move quickly to help owners capitalize on opportunities, accelerate growth, and preserve equity.

We partner with commercial banks, private equity, and other investors to package capital solutions that support business growth and enhance shareholder returns. Financing can include senior secured, subordinate secured, mezzanine, and bridge loans.
