Frederick, MD (PRWEB) January 18, 2016
Strategic Capital Partners is calling early-stage, emerging-growth tech companies seeking private equity capital to fuel the next phase of growth to apply to its second Capital Cycle of 2016. The application deadline is March 4. To apply, companies access the SCP website (http://www.StrategicCapPartners.com) and click on “Register” in the navigation bar. SCP accepts up to 25 applications for each Capital Cycle.
Through its angel events, SCP facilitated investment of more than $1.1 million in five companies in the past year. According to SCP President Mark Greathouse, “We afford access to Mid-Atlantic Angels (MAA), one of the top angel investing networks in the Mid-Atlantic region and a significant source of early-stage capital for entrepreneurs. Notably, the first company SCP helped raise capital for has recently been acquired, netting a substantial return for investors. We seek to improve on our record of success for both entrepreneurs and investors.”
Of note, SCP partners and MAA member investors aren’t just a source of capital; they bring top-notch mentorship and personal networks to clients as well. SCP Partner Philip “Flip” Lacy notes, “We are invested in the entrepreneurial success that feeds economic development in Frederick and the Mid-Atlantic region.”
When companies participate in the SCP Capital Cycle, they enter into a proven process aimed at ensuring that capital needs are met. The application process kicks off with the SCP Business Evaluation comprised of 20 weighted criteria that determine whether companies are ready to pitch to investors. If selected to pitch, the company moves on to the SCP Pitch Day. If the company passes muster on Pitch Day, it gets to present to MAA angel investor members a week later at a Screening Event. Companies are assessed by the investors – who may also invest at this stage – and may be selected to pitch at the capstone Angel Event, the final stage of the Capital Cycle. Companies also go through a due diligence process and will have an opportunity to have their pitch video-taped for posting on the SCP website for MAA investor member access.
