WHY COMEBACK?

Finding capital can be a challenge for America's Heartland companies. We are here to help you raise the investment you need: a small round,  quickly. And then get back to showing everyone that you can execute. You don't need to leave your region to build your company.  You can do it right here in the Heartland.

 

Comeback Capital has assembled an all-star group of coastal and local LP's who share our passion and belief that great companies have been and will continue to be built in the Heartland. In addition to capital, Comeback Capital portfolio companies benefit from connections to advisors from more established startup markets.
