Horizon Technology Finance led a $30 million venture loan facility for TemperPack Technologies. Horizon Technology Finance funded $7.5 million of the initial $15 million draw and an investment vehicle managed by Horizon Technology Finance Management, Horizon Technology Finance’s advisor, funded $7.5 million. TemperPack will use the loan proceeds for growth and general working capital purposes.

TemperPack manufactures sustainable insulated packaging for perishable last mile deliveries. Its customers include meal kit, frozen food and life science companies.
