Sharmila founded and is the Chief Executive Officer of Katalyst. With her background in venture capital and practice management she is uniquely positioned to structure mutually beneficial transactions while providing strategic assistance to portfolio clients.

“It’s a novel concept, but I wanted to create a finance company that coupled advice and support along with funds to implement initiatives.  What better way for the client and Katalyst to ensure a successful transaction than to help the client put their growth plans into action.

Prior to founding Katalyst FP, LLC, Sharmila was co-founder and principal of a merchant cash advance company in New York and she served as the Chief Operating Officer. While there, Sharmila established a strong, well diversified portfolio which included several medical practices.

Prior to that Sharmila served as the Director of Acquisitions and Investments for Newtek Business Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEWT).  During her eight year tenure with Newtek, Sharmila managed the resources and activity of over $150 million of investment capital deployed through the company’s 15 venture capital funds located around the country.

Mrs. Amico graduated Cum Laude with Bachelors in Finance, and has also received her MBA in Finance and Organizational Management, with honors, from Hofstra University in New York.
