    Greer Capital Advisors (GCA) provides capital for private equity projects that act as catalysts for economic growth in the Alabama area and the Southeast community. The firm's industry focus is privately held companies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and diagnostics industries. Greer also considers select healthcare services companies with a technology concentration or in a highly specialized market niche. GCA seeks companies looking for early and growth stage investment, with proof of concept completed, and revenues at or rapidly approaching a breakeven level of cash flow. The partners typically invest a total of between $100,000 and $2,000,000 of capital per company. Although the firm usually holds board seats with the majority of its portfolio companies, a board seat is not a strict requirement of the fund.
