The Program

The Program targets investments of $5 – $10 million in high-quality, cash flow-positive companies with a nexus to California. The investments are typically structured as subordinated debt or equity with pricing and terms reflective of current market conditions. The Program aims to achieve reasonable risk-adjusted returns while encouraging the development and growth of California businesses. No assurance can be given that the Program will achieve this objective.
