Who is Triton Capital?

Triton Capital provides financing to small- and medium-sized businesses in all 50 states. Headquartered in San Diego, the company launched during the Great Recession of 2008 when small businesses were in dire need of alternative sources of financing.

Although the company originally launched as a resource for equipment financing, the alternative lender now offers SBA loans, working capital loans, equipment loans and business lines of credit. Triton is a direct lender, but it also partners with other lenders.


Why choose Triton Capital?

Triton’s innovative technology streamlines the loan application process for loan products that typically carry lower interest rates and offer longer repayment terms than competing lenders. The company claims 82 percent of its clients return for additional funding and that its customers see funding in about four hours — 10 times faster than other lenders.

One of the company’s most unusual features is its pledge to offer the lowest payments on equipment financing and working capital. If you happen to find a lower rate, Triton will beat it or pay you $250. This business model ensures Triton is offering you transparent, low-cost solutions. Its drawbacks include tougher underwriting requirements and extensive paperwork.

You can use its SBA loans can for debt refinancing, marketing, business expansion, new employee hires and equipment purchases — these loans are geared toward established businesses with solid credit histories and strong balance sheets.
