Stony Lonesome Group is a boutique merchant bank that makes private equity and venture capital investments. SLG is not a dedicated fund. We structure each investment as a unique Special Purpose Vehicle and allow investors to opt-in or opt-out on a deal by deal basis. By definition, a merchant bank is a principal investor and not just an advisor or an investment banker. Our value proposition is that we provide individual investors and small family offices access to unique deals that we originate and lead and allow them to invest their capital alongside sophisticated sector specific institutional investors.
Stony Lonesome Group is a generalist, but tends to favor investments in areas like National Security, Homeland Defense, and Military/Defense related companies. We will invest across the capital structure to include equity, debt, and short term credit financings. Our typical investment ranges from $100,000 to $1mm and we will syndicate larger deals in the $1mm to $10mm range.
We are hands on investors who use our vast network of operating partners and venture partners to help us source, diligence, and monitor our portfolio companies. We tend to take “execution risk” and avoid “technology risk”. Finally, at the end of the day, we are looking to back strong management teams and provide them with the capital and mentorship to help them reach their potential.
