    Escalate Capital Partners (ECP) is a private structured finance firm focused exclusively on providing capital to venture-backed expansion and late-stage companies within technology, life sciences and service based industries. The ECP team combines over 100 years of experience in venture capital and commercial finance to deliver a broad array of senior, subordinated and mezzanine debt solutions that are less dilutive than equity and provide more flexibility than conventional debt from banks or asset-based lenders. With offices in San Jose, California and Austin, Escalate Capital is focused on making investments of $3 million to $15 million to companies with annual revenues in excess of $10 million. The firm has committed over $2 billion of capital in over 500 transactions and has over $800 million in cumulative capital commitments.
