    Founded 1998, Murex Investments operates a family of four investment funds. Murex Investments I, LP is the region's only SBA-licensed New Markets Venture Capital Company. This fund invests in aggressively-growing small businesses with defined exit strategies. While criteria are broad, this fund is currently interested in later-stage companies in traditional industries. Murex Investments II, LP shares strategy with Murex Investments I, but has a particular focus on the State of Delaware. Murex Investments III, LP, currently in formation, will provide equity and mezzanine financing for middle-market industrial, distribution, business service and healthcare companies offering attractive prospects for growth and job creation/retention. Murex Patient Capital Fund provides mezzanine financing for strong companies that increase employment and wealth, targeting companies at the small end of the middle market. Company investments typically range in size from $500,000 to $2,000,000, and are staged through multiple financings to manage risk. Criteria include: early, expansion, or succession-stage companies and $1,000,000 to $20,000,000 in revenue.
