Honour Capital Surpasses $100MM in Capital Financing in First Full Year in Business
JAN 5, 2022 - 6:26 am
Honour Capital, which was launched in October 2020, completed transactions totaling more than $100 million in capital financing in 2021.
“We have experienced incredible success by assembling an all-star team that seeks to deliver on the promise of what Honour Capital is all about, why it was created and what it promises to do within the marketplace with our customer base and with our clients,” Brian Slipka, co-founder of Honour Capital, said. “We are about relationships first. Those relationships present new opportunities, new markets and new capital solution products.”
“A strength of Honour Capital is that we have capital finance pros with experience in lots of different industries,” Shea Huston, co-founder of Honour Capital, said. “There are several from tech and healthcare, others from industries as diverse as fleet and transportation, agriculture and the golf industry. We have looked strategically at where we have strong relationships and where we could add value and grow.”
“Our core business is to provide various capital solutions and growth capital around equipment or strategic investments that growing businesses are making,” Huston said. “They don’t want to give up equity and control and are looking for a complementary source of capital that isn’t as rigid or restricted as bank financings or government loans. That’s our core, and we are also seeing new opportunities as we develop some of our client and partner relationships.”
“Our mantra is ‘encourage, equip, collaborate and uplift,’” Slipka said. “Those four words drive the way we conduct the business and lead the business. If we live by those words, success will follow, and our first year has demonstrated this.”
“Along with that, we want to be a force for good, and we’ll continue to press that,” Slipka said. “It isn’t only going to be about driving huge profitable gains every year. It may mean that we are extremely generous for nonprofits, mission work and charities. That’s deeply real for us, and our clients can be confident that when they work with Honour Capital, they are also benefiting the communities in which we serve.”
Since its inception, Honour Capital has grown to employ a team of 20 professionals with headquarters in Minneapolis and regional offices near Philadelphia and in Florida.
