    Slate Venture Group is a private equity investment group based in Baltimore, Maryland. Slate invests at all stages of a company's life cycle, from growth equity investing to leveraged buyouts, and is focused on companies headquartered in the Mid-Atlantic region (but will consider companies with headquarters located East of the Mississippi River). The principals of Slate have significant experience in both running small-to-mid-sized companies and investing in venture capital and leveraged buyout transactions. Slate's approach is to acquire/invest in one or two new companies per year and focus on their success, rather than striving for a larger volume of deals and a 'portfolio' return. Slate targets manufacturing, distribution and service businesses; all industries will be considered except banking, real estate, and natural resources; preferred industries include business services, distribution, light manufacturing, direct marketing, food & beverage, and consumer and retail investments. Slate will focus on companies with annual EBITDA of $2-10 million.
