Denver Business Journal: Colorado financial consulting firm spins off marijuana-focused subsidiary

A Colorado financial consulting firm that has made its name working in alternative industries has spun off a subsidiary company to specialize in the cannabis industry.

Dynamic Funding Inc., based in the Inverness business park near Centennial Airport, been “dipping its toes” in the cannabis industry for the last year. But now has decided to spin off a subsidiary to focus on the fast-growing cannabis industry, said Jim Tarbell, president of Dynamic Funding, parent company to the newly formed Dynamic Alternative Finance.

Its advisers will match up cannabis business owners with investors.

“The traditional lenders are not loaning to that world,” Tarbell said. “Those businesses don’t have options.”

Dynamic Alternative Finance says it is an independent capital arranger and financial adviser to alternative businesses, with a specific focus on the cannabis industry. It aims to advise marijuana business owners and other businesses and arrange financing for equipment, real estate and working capital.

The team is headed up by Scott Jordan, director of business development at Dynamic Alternative Finance.

“He has private investors interested in lending,” Tarbell said. “He matches up borrowers and lenders.”

The spinoff company is hoping to be ahead of the curve in the industry and be poised for growth in other states as voters consider legalizing medical or recreational marijuana use, said Brad Bayless, vice president of Dynamic Funding.

“To form a separate company, it says we are serious about this,” Bayless said.

Dynamic Funding has been in the equipment leasing business for 20 years. But two years ago, they brought on Jordan, who specialized in alternative deals, including those with more difficult credit.

Soon, he started getting inquiries from business owners in the cannabis industry. They could not get traditional bank loans, they said, and were looking for private investors. And while investing in cannabis is taboo with some investors who are leery about running afoul with federal laws that still ban marijuana use, there is growing interest from investors.

“The role we play had evolved,” Bayless aid. “Scott (Jordan) has become the go-to-guy to get deals done.”

In the past 10 months, Jordan has arranged more than $12.5 million in loans and equipment leases for the cannabis industry and other businesses. He is an author, speaker and nationally recognized finance expert in the cannabis industry, helping business owners’ access debt-based funding.

“Scott Jordan and the team at Dynamic Alternative Finance helped us obtain the money we needed for expansion without requiring us to give up any equity or control in our company,“ said Erich Pearson, owner of SPARC, a San Francisco marijuana collective.

Jordan said he is using his existing relationships and referral business partners to find the right funding for alternative businesses, including those in the cannabis industry,

“Banks and traditional lenders are currently not an option for marijuana business owners, which is where we come in – helping to source the proper financing while protecting company assets, intellectual property and preserving working capital,” he said.
