Trent Dykes

For the last two decades, our Venture and Growth Lending team has worked with market leading debt providers to VC and PE-backed, pre-IPO/SPAC and public companies, predominantly in the technology, fintech, life science and healthcare sectors. Our team has handled thousands of financings across the world and we strive to make the process as smooth, easy and fun as possible. We try to demystify the world of Venture and Growth stage lending for our bank and private credit fund clients, the companies that borrow from them and the VC/PE funds that support the ecosystem.

Why startups? The best part of my job is seeing the companies we helped fund early on become wildly successful and deploy life-changing technologies and drugs that raise the bar for the human experience. 

Passions: Leadership, coaching, music, sports, my wife and two sons.

What my clients value: Efficiency, responsiveness and knowledge of the market.

Some of my clients: Banks: Silicon Valley Bank, Comerica Bank, JP Morgan Chase Bank, Western Alliance Bank, Stifel Bank, Signature Bank. Private Credit: Golub, Alliance Bernstein, SVB Capital, West River, SQN Venture Partners, ARI, Columbia Pacific.
