    Since its founding in 1977, San Francisco-based ATEL Capital Group has become the largest private and closely-held, independent leasing company in the United States with approximately $2 billion in asset-secured transactions under management. ATEL Capital Group formed ATEL Ventures, Inc. in 1998 to provide secured financing to emerging growth companies. Atel specializes in equipment leasing, asset-based lending, equipment management, lease administration, and a broad mix of other investments. The group focuses on financing business necessary equipment and providing growth capital term loans/venture debt to companies that are also funded by quality venture capital firms. The firm also maintains an office in Denver.
