James River Capital Helps Secure Seed Money for New Businesses of All Sizes


JAMES RIVER CAPITALStarting a successful company takes more than just a great idea. It takes financing. And, this is often the most challenging part of starting a new venture. Small companies can usually get started with a person’s savings augmented with loans from family and friends. However, if you are thinking big, you are going to need more funds than your immediate circle can provide. Large operations require large bank loans or funding from a large group of investors. That’s where James River Capital can help.
