Chief Financial Officer, Synergistic Funding

Keyur has lived in Tampa for over 30 years and has a passion to help the Tampa Bay Business Community grow into one of the top markets in the U.S. Growing up in a family owned business located in the Tampa International Airport, he always knew that he would be in business for himself. He received his degree from the University of South Florida in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance back in 2005 and then his MBA in 2011. Keyur has a wealth of knowledge and experience through many of his previous endeavors including holding several FINRA Licenses while working at T. Rowe Price right out of College. He held his Series 6, 63, and 7 while helping individual employees establish, rebalance and rollover their 401k accounts and other retirement assets.

In addition to these licensees Keyur has also been a licensed Real Estate Sales Associate since 2005. Representing both buyers and sellers on numerous transactions.

In 2008 right before the crash, Keyur joined forces with his current business partner Naim Hamdar and entered into the world of Merchant Services also known as Credit Card Processing. Today they now process transactions for over 2500 local small businesses. In their quest to grow their portfolio they uncovered a large demand for merchant funding and the lack of capital that small businesses have access too. In 2014 they launched Synergistic Funding, a commercial finance company that provides a wide array of capital solutions for both existing and aspiring business owners. In a very short time they have funded over 75 loans and are growing at a very rapid rate. Through their consultative approach, Synergistic Funding looks at the business in a holistic approach and looks for as many funding options as possible, allowing the business owner to choose what they feel is the best option for their business. Synergistic Funding truly is the catalyst for growth.
