    Founded in January 2001, SAS Investors was formed to facilitate the creation and growth of seed- and early-stage technology companies in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island). Located in New York City and backed by Canaan Partners, Rho Capital Partners, and Sevin Rosen Funds, SAS Investors has raised an initial $40-million-dollar fund for the selection and development of fully defensible technologies born out of high-tech labs and corporate/university caliber research and development centers. The fund also offers co-location services for selected portfolio companies. SAS will invest up to $3 million over the life cycle of a relationship, with an initial investment ranging from several hundred thousand dollars up to $1.25 million.
