There are many financial institutions in America, but Southridge Capital has proved to be more than an ordinary institution.
Since the early 90’s, Southridge Capital has donated its own money into businesses they believed to have outstanding potential. Southridge Capital acted as a bank that provided business loans. However, Southridge based their decision solely on the business plan. They looked past the credit score of the companies they helped, and they focused solely on the potential to make the money back in a reasonable amount of time. Today, every company that Southridge invested into is booming. Southridge is responsible for investing over one billion dollars into small businesses that would eventually become large international businesses.
Today, Southridge Capital focuses on other ways they can find money for companies. They locate companies—similar to them—that look past a credit score and more towards the character of the business owner.

Southridge is home to some of the best investment advisors in America. Many of the original advisors are still working for Southridge, and they are teaching the new advisors how to be perfect in every aspect of investing.
Southridge can be contacted by phone, by email, or in person because walk-ins are always welcome. After a short conversation, Southridge advisors will immediately know if they can be of any assistance to the company inquiring about their services.
