Overview


Founded in 1980, WTI has provided over $3 billion of debt and equity capital to technology and life science companies ranging from early-stage private companies to publicly-traded companies.  Our investments range from $250 thousand to $30 million and are structured as fully usable, unrestricted growth capital.

As a private firm with a track record of success through many economic cycles, WTI has an exceptionally stable capital base which allows us to be highly responsive, risk tolerant and creative in addressing each company’s unique capital requirements. 

Our team’s successful investment track record and extensive business experience ensures that we fully understand the unpredictability inherent in growth businesses, resulting in WTI's consistently strong alignment with a company's management team and equity investors.


As a result, we have been fortunate to work with exceptionally talented teams at the world's leading technology and life science companies, including 3PAR, Brocade, Cerent, Facebook, Google, IDEC Pharmaceuticals, IronPort Systems, Juniper Networks, Neutral Tandem, Postini, Transmeta, Volcano and Youku.com.
