About Us


Three Roots Capital is an innovative investment capital company that goes well beyond providing financing. We help companies prepare to raise capital, assist them in operating more productively and efficiently, and connect them to large networks of investors and service providers.

A 501(c)3 and a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), Three Roots was started in response to the chronic need for more investment capital in central and southern Appalachia and in the broader southeast region of the United States.

Our name is inspired by the concept of a root system providing resources to help a sapling grow into a large tree. As a tree grows, the root system grows, so there is a symbiosis between the tree and its root system. The resources that help a business grow – capital, connections, and expertise – is analogous to the way water, fertilizer, and other nutrients enable a tree to grow.

We will:

  • Continue to build our national reputation for being trustworthy and capable providers of creative access to impactful capital.
  • Grow assets under management through client company successes and provide financial partners with compelling opportunities.
  • Offer intelligent and well-managed impact capital programs focused on fueling business growth.
  • Be engaging, smart, and selective with advisory engagements when value to everyone involved is identified.
