    Description:

    Founded in 1980, WTI is a leading venture debt firm that has provided over $3 billion of debt and equity capital to technology and life science companies ranging from early-stage private companies to publicly-traded companies. The firm's investments range from $250k to $30M and are structured as fully usable, unrestricted growth capital. WTI's 13th fund builds upon the success of the firm's 30-year history, which includes investments in companies such as Brocade, Cerent, Facebook, Google, IDEC Pharma-ceuticals, Infoseek, IronPort, Juniper Networks, NanoSolar, Postini, Transmeta, VeriSign, and many others. The firm's most recent fund is Venture Lending & Leasing VI, with $294,000,000. Western Technology looks to invest in companies with a minimum of $25 million in sales per year within 5 years. Through the firm's venture lending operations, WTI entities hold warrants in numerous client companies. In selected cases, WTI provides equity capital in conjunction with debt financing.
