    Topping Capital is a strategic adviser of alternative solutions and a merchant bank to small businesses. Through a public-private hybrid fund structure, Topping Capital allocates approximately half of capital to niche strategy hedge funds and the remainder to emerging stage growth companies at an inflection point (beyond idea/concept and project/product phases) where capital helps reduce failure rate probability and accelerate growth. Topping's opinion is the sweet spot of opportunity is in private valuations of $2M to $12M (direct) and managers (funds) of $25M to $125M. The firm has 100 Clients, 35 Investment Partners, and 18 Operational Partners.
