Providing access to unique proprietary deal flow that has been sourced and diligenced by our world class team of subject matter experts.

“While proprietary deal flow and access to world-class subject matter experts via our network of Venture Partners and Advisors are our Edge, our base of like-minded Investors is our LIFEBLOOD in terms of empowering us to back great entrepreneurs."

— Sean Drake

Founder & Managing Partner


Stony Lonesome Group has over 100 investors across multiple special purpose investment vehicles and its 3 Funds. We like to say that the best way to get to know us is to look at a deal together. We keep our minimum investment threshold low ($10,000 for SPVs and $25,000 for Funds) to allow new investors to get to know us and to let the trust and confidence develop over time. Some of our earliest investors started out with less than $10,000 in our initial deals and their personal allocation to SLG has now grown to $500,000 across multiple deals and multiple funds. Most of our investors are repeat investors. Each of our Funds has a special membership for its early seed investors known as the Tip of the Bayonet "9".

Deal Syndication

As a true Merchant Bank, not only does SLG utilize our unique expertise to lead deals as principal investors, we also syndicate those opportunities with other co-investors as part of our active management approach.

GP Investment

Advisory Board Members are part of the General Partnership for each of the Funds and are required to have "skin in the game" as investors in the Fund through the GP. We believe that it is important for our advisors to not just advise, but to share the same risk that our investors are taking based upon their recommendations and investment decisions.
