  • Affiliated with the Gladstone Companies' family of investment funds, which manage $2.0 billion of assets and has a long history of financing established lower middle businesses with the growth and cash flow profile to support institutional capital investments.

  • Since its formation in 2001, Gladstone Capital Corporation (GFC’s parent company) has made over 450 loans or investments in over 200 businesses representing over $1.5 billion invested.

GFC’s investment focus recognizes the unique opportunity to support the growth of highly skilled and experienced business owners historically disproportionally underserved by traditional lenders and investors, that not only include women and racial and ethnic minorities, but also the handicapped and disabled, military veterans, and other individuals with a background that has previously limited them from accessing mainstream capital resources.
