Our Team
5th Line Capital LLC
James Turner
Founder & CEO

James started an entrepreneurial career with an e-commerce business out of his college apartment. After selling off the business upon graduation he spent some time in the stock market trading options. Realizing his true interest in the field of growing businesses, he shifted to starting to work with companies at their earliest stages. James, bringing his business and finance experience, saw an opportunity to partner on an equity basis with early-stage product & market-focused founders to launch and scale businesses.

As time grew and the business evolved, James has led various strategic initiatives, whether micro or macro with respect to the firm’s direction. Today, James’ focus lies on leading sales & business development strategies of the firm. As the company continues to evolve, James’ focus sits more and more with overall firm strategy and direction – leading the charge in the development of new revenue streams and market opportunities for continued growth.
