About us
(and how we can help you)

Sweet Leaf Madison Capital is the union of two seasoned specialty finance teams: Sweet Leaf Capital, one of the first private direct-lending companies in the cannabis industry founded by Ted Harris and Gabe Selko in Denver in 2015, and Madison Ventures+, an investment firm I founded in NYC over 26 years ago, focused on real estate and specialty finance.

When our teams partnered in September of 2021, we were determined to build a company that offered customized lending solutions to meet expected growth in the sector in the coming years, and to help hundreds of cannabis businesses fund growth and achieve success.


Today, as the only full-service lender in the industry, Sweet Leaf Madison Capital prides itself on:

  • Serving all cannabis segments from “seed-to-sale”, including cultivation, processing, distribution and retail 

  • Providing versatile funding solutions to the underserved middle-market of the industry 

  • Working with businesses like yours to bring quality cannabis products and services to the world

We look forward to having you as a valued client.
