Since TriplePoint’s launch in 2006, we’ve provided more than $5 billion in commitments to more than 500 venture capital-backed companies across the globe and are widely recognized as the preferred provider of debt financing in our industry.
Jim Labe, our CEO, is widely recognized as the pioneer of the 35-year-old venture leasing and lending segment of the commercial finance industry. He played a key role in creating this method of financing at Equitec Leasing Group in the early '80s and in establishing it as an essential source of capital for privately-held, venture capital-backed companies.
In 1987, Mr. Labe founded Comdisco Ventures, which quickly became the leader in the venture leasing and lending industry. During Mr. Labe's tenure as CEO, Comdisco Ventures provided more than $3 billion in lease and loan financings to more than 970 leading venture capital-backed companies.
In 2006, Jim Labe and Sajal Srivastava launched TriplePoint Capital to redefine the industry to meet the evolving needs of the market. Since launching we've provided more than $5 billion in lease and loan financings to hundreds of venture capital-backed companies across the world from various industries and stages of development.
TriplePoint Capital has redefined the industry Mr. Labe first established by offering a superior class of products and services to meet the evolving needs of today's venture capital market.
