Midnight Capital was formed in the summer of 2016 by Elie Schwartz and Simon Singer, who as the principals of Nightingale Properties, experienced a dislocation in the debt markets and saw an opportunity to provide a loan product designed by Borrowers.

To launch Midnight Capital, Elie and Simon hired Harris Lukashok, a lender with years of experience, to head originations. Harris leads an experienced team of professionals at Midnight, which is on track to close $100 million in its first year in business.
