About Us

Our Approach

Our Approach

Through an extensive network and established relationships with family offices, private equity, venture capital firms, lenders, and debt investors, Podium assists clients in accessing private capital markets for both debt and equity financing.

Our proven, step-by-step process is managed to ensure that our clients can remain focused on running their businesses while we create efficient, executable, and cost-effective solutions to various financing needs. 

Culture is Key

Investors tend to focus on numbers, but over the years we’ve learned that a company’s culture, while not measurable on a spreadsheet, can often be the secret to success and a major competitive advantage. We look for companies that put customers and employees first and approach challenging times with a healthy dose of empathy.

Win-Win

Our ambition is to help you achieve your goals as smoothly as possible. Having a common goal is what makes a team perform at their highest level. We consider a successful transaction when a client and the investor are both equally satisfied with the outcome. 

Collaborative & Informative 

We collaborate with both clients and investors to create beneficial partnerships. As part of our hands-on approach, we work closely with our clients to develop innovative solutions and find investors that can bring adequate capital, knowledge, network, and potentially management to the existing business.
