Capital Entrepreneurs Who Put Your Interests First.
We’re empathetic experts. Not only have we been in your shoes, we’ve walked both sides of the business as founders and investors. Our first-hand experience motivates us to be the approachable, reliable and supportive partners we wished we had to help us better navigate capital decisions and business growth.
We launched Novel Capital with the purpose of providing entrepreneurs like you with simple, flexible, and fair growth capital options throughout your journey.
Be simple, direct, and transparent.
Simply put, we do as we say. We are upfront with you about our terms and cost of capital, and we keep you updated throughout the entire funding process.
Keep everything entrepreneur-centered.
We evaluate where you are in your journey and provide you with the best resources to grow your company your way.
Maintain integrity and accountability.
We are ethical in all aspects of life. In the workplace, we prioritize integrity when making decisions, interacting with our team, and working with customers.
Act as capital entrepreneurs.
We always bring an innovative mindset to developing the right capital products for different types of companies and entrepreneurs, based on what they want to accomplish.
Our Commitment to Diversity
Novel Capital is committed to changing the funding landscape, one investment at a time. More than 47% of our investments support entrepreneurs who identify as women and people of color.
Our unique investment approach is changing the way companies are evaluated, increasing support for underrepresented entrepreneurs and the number of diverse companies who receive capital.
We evaluate entrepreneurs solely on the results they are delivering and their company’s achievements – just like it should be.
“Most of us in the venture ecosystem know that the number of investors and founders of color are not representative, and we know that there are inherent challenges to the way capital is accessed. At Novel, we are committed to making a direct impact on the number of diverse entrepreneurs we can help by providing capital to grow their companies. Through our commitment and actions, we can create new opportunities and change the statistics.”

“It’s not hard to find an investor. But it is rare to find investors that are genuinely interested in helping their partner companies. Their advice and help is just (if not more) valuable than the capital.”
