Financing the Growth of Tomorrow's Technology Leaders Today
Our goal at Hercules is simple — to support the entrepreneurs of today with the capital resources, experience and expertise to guide them toward becoming the corporate leaders of tomorrow.
Hercules is a specialty finance company that provides debt and equity growth capital to technology-related companies, including cleantech, life science and select lower middle market companies.
We focus on providing structured debt financing to venture capital and private equity-backed technology-related companies at all stages of development, from emerging growth companies, to expansion-stage companies and established-stage companies, including select publicly listed companies and lower middle market companies, to help them reach critical growth milestones.
Our goal is to be the leading structured debt financing provider of choice for venture capital and private equity-backed technology-related companies requiring sophisticated and customized financing solutions.
Our strategy is to evaluate and invest in a broad range of technology-related companies including clean technology, life science and lower middle market companies and to offer a full suite of growth capital products up and down the capital structure.
We invest primarily in structured debt with warrants and, to a lesser extent, in senior debt and equity investments. We also make investments in qualifying small businesses through two wholly-owned, small business investment company subsidiaries, Hercules Technology II, L.P. ("HT II") and Hercules Technology III, L.P. ("HT III").
Our investment objective is to maximize our portfolio total return by generating current income from our debt investments and capital appreciation from our equity-related investments.
