We invest in entrepreneurs that dare to be great, that face risk head on, and who are relentless in their drive to build a great business.
Following the ethos of “Invest in what you know”, Stony Lonesome Group has long been an early visionary and leader in the Veteranpreneur sector. We are committed to partnering with post 9-11 Military Veteran entrepreneurs to help them realize their dream to build the next wave of iconic Veteran founded companies like Nike, Fed-Ex, WalMart, and USAA.
At SLG, we like to call our brand of investing “mentor capital” as much as it is “venture capital”. For our investors, this translates into the SLG Triple Bottom Line value proposition that extends well beyond ROI, but instead offers the chance to make a difference with our mission focused investing.
We are capitalists, not philanthropists
Focus on investing in entrepreneurs
who are Veterans
Well capitalized companies that empower Veterans to hire other Veterans
“SLG does not back entrepreneurs who are military veterans because we think it’s the charitable thing to do, or even the right thing to do; we back them because we believe that military veterans possess the grit, ability to operate under pressure, determination to complete the mission, and integrity to succeed in the challenging start up eco-system."
