Strategic Capital Partners, LLC (SCP) in concert with Mid-Atlantic Angels is actively feeding the Frederick area economy by obtaining investment capital for emerging technology companies. SCP has delivered investment events and professional advisory support over the past 2½ years that have already resulted in more than a million dollars of capital investment for five companies. The SCP successes have revealed the urgent need for regional private equity investment and resulted in establishing the Mid-Atlantic Angels Corporation, a synergistic, dynamic group of SEC-accredited investors.

Local companies benefitting from SCP initiatives in recent months include BioFactura, Inc. which recently closed a $1.8 million investment and Triea Technologies which continues to raise investment capital.

BioFactura is a Frederick success story, producing biosimilar drugs in partnership with the pharmaceutical industry. CEO Darryl Sampey notes, “Strategic Capital Partners was instrumental in our capital raise by bringing us the initial investment through Mid-Atlantic Angels. This gave us the momentum to successfully complete our entire Series A capital raise with a significant oversubscription.”

Greathouse noted, “I am excited to be part of this initiative to enable the most promising entrepreneurial enterprises in the Frederick region to secure the capital needed for the growth that spurs innovation, builds value, creates jobs, and ensures a thriving economy.”

Arthur Lazerow, Chairman of Triea Technologies says, “Strategic Capital Partners has been an essential partner both for the timely raising of needed capital and for providing business advisory support.” Triea delivers a process by which energy is applied from decomposing livestock manure followed by extraction of essential nutrients for fertilizers.

SCP events are modelled after successful angel investment events in which companies offer a 10-minute pitch to several investors followed by timed rounds of questions and answers. SCP partner and BMC Accounting President Hess adds, “While it can be every bit as exciting as Shark Tank, our interested investors negotiate privately with the entrepreneurs after the event. Resulting deals may involve several investors and pursuit of capital from multiple angel groups.”

Angel investors are defined as high net worth individuals that fill the capitalization space between a company’s start-up funding – usually referred to as “friends and family” – and the larger fund-based venture capital that serves companies much further along in maturity.

SCP is excited to help entrepreneurial businesses flourish in Frederick County. SCP is actively accepting applications from qualified companies, and Mid-Atlantic Angels seeks to expand its network of angel investors. Businesses seeking capital are invited to the Application page on, while prospective investors may inquire on the Contact Us page.
