Hercules Technology Growth Capital will change its name to Hercules Capital effective February 25, 2016. The company will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the HTGC ticker symbol.

Hercules’ founding mission was to create an opportunity for individual and institutional investors to gain exposure to high-growth, technology-based companies, while also providing entrepreneurs with an alternative source of growth capital that complemented their existing venture capital financing. Since its founding in December 2003, a cumulative $460 billion has been invested in U.S.-based venture-capital backed companies, according to Dow Jones VentureSource Q4/2015 report.

To accompany the new brand name, the company will unveil a new brand identity, building on the strong brand and reputation established with the original Hercules Technology Growth Capital logo.
