Our Story

Like your business, Endeavor Bank started as a dream.

Back in early 2015, we envisioned a bank for businesses and their owners where decisions are made locally and services are delivered by an experienced banker who is also a trusted advisor.

Armed with decades of banking and business experience, Dan Yates, Steve Sefton, and a board of directors made up of leading financial experts and San Diego businesspeople, began actively laying the foundation for Endeavor Bank in the summer of 2016.

After an initial capital raise of $26.6 million and the backing of over 450 investors/owners, we opened for business in January 2018.

The San Diego business community has embraced our new Endeavor, realizing that we deliver more than an exceptional banking experience through our consultative banking approach.

We are a community-focused business bank. Headquartered in the iconic Symphony Towers, we also have a production office in Carlsbad allowing us to service customers in North County and throughout Southern California.

The banking services we offer specifically meet the needs of businesses across a broad spectrum of industries and specialties.

Our consultative banking services differentiate us from other banks.

“Local companies want to do business with local banks. Large, national banking institutions don’t offer personalized services. Endeavor Bank isn’t a traditional bank and we aren’t traditional bankers.” –Steve Sefton, President of Endeavor Bank.
