Pershing Ventures was established to provide financing solutions to early-stage ventures and SMEs that were either unable to obtain financing from traditional financial sources or were receiving offers that didn't align with the operational realities of their business.

Our Story

We combine traditional financing knowledge and capabilities with modern inputs like alternative data sets and instant financial reporting, enabling us to structure financing solutions that make sense in the context of your operations and specific goals.

Pershing Ventures is incorporated in the United States and operates with permanent capital, enabling a decision making process based on long-term customer value as opposed to short term KPIs.

“As a startup business owner, I’m very grateful to have benefited from Pershing Ventures integrated, revenue-based, financial solutions. In our first year, we experienced rising demand for our Rent to Own and Sale and Rent Back facilities, however, we’ve been hamstrung by a lack of funding to support demand for our services. Fortunately for us, David Weiss & Tor Trivers immediately grasped the concept of our business and saw an opportunity to help fund our growth. Pershing Ventures are an ideal financial partner, willing to work with our business as we navigate our future..”
