From the very beginning of his career, Cole has recognized the transformative value of factoring and asset-based lending to manage cashflow for growing companies without impacting equity. In 1996, he founded State Bank’s factoring and asset based lending business; when they sold their business in 2007, Cole took the leap into entrepreneurship and founded Far West Capital, which had a successful bank exit in 2018 after supporting hundreds of companies’ growth.
