Joel Adelman Chief Executive Officer

A third-generation entrepreneur, Joel founded Advance Partners, an organization dedicated to funding small businesses in the staffing market. In two decades, the company lent over $15 billion in working capital, and was acquired by Paychex in 2015. Joel has started Encore Funding to continue his philosophy of an “entrepreneur serving entrepreneurs” with a goal of providing financial support to established companies that don’t meet the strict requirements of conventional lending.


Matt oversees the firm’s day-to-day operations and lending partnerships. His goal: Helping small businesses reach the next stage of growth. Prior to Encore, Matt served as General Counsel at Roundstone Insurance, an organization dedicated to helping businesses lower health care costs.
