ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legion Capital Corporation, a leading venture capital and advisory firm, announced it has launched a subsidiary company, Stage 1 Funding, LLC, to address the growing demand for small business finance.
Stage 1 will work with small companies and entrepreneurs to help them access capital to start or grow their business. Led by President Joseph B. Hilton of the famed Hilton Hotel Family, Stage 1 has a management team with over 75 years of venture capital and corporate finance experience.
Hilton, who is the grandson of legendary American hotelier Conrad Hilton, stated: "We are really excited to launch our Stage 1 Funding platform and initiative.

Business Credit Lines
Accounts Receivable or Contract Finance
Equipment or Inventory Finance

Crowdfunding through the Legion Capital Funding Platform
Through its parent company Legion Capital, Stage 1 has the ability to directly invest in companies through its own family of venture funds, including a mortgage fund for real estate entrepreneurs, and a secured debt fund for accounts receivable, contract or general debt finance.
