    Easton Capital Investment Group manages approximately $200 million on behalf of a number of significant institutional investors in its three funds, Easton Capital Partners, L.P., Easton Hunt Capital Partners, LP and Easton Hunt New York, LP. Easton makes investments ranging in size from $500,000 to $7.5 million and has strategic co-investment relationships with many of its institutional investors, which allows it to participate in larger initial and follow-on rounds of funding. The firm targets investment in healthcare and other opportunities which address continuing persistent societal needs or wants, such as out-of-favor technologies and companies with innovative products and services that have achieved, or are likely to quickly achieve, a critical level of commercial acceptance. Easton has offices in New York and Florida. The firm is stage-agnostic and considers opportunities from early stage venture capital to later stage growth capital. However, Easton has generally not been a seed stage investor. Team members have participated in running more than $1 billion in investment funds during their careers, have helped launch more than 100 companies, and have made more than five investments that each generated returns in excess of 100x-to-1.
