    Slayton Capital was founded in 2001 in Silicon Valley California by the Honorable Gregory W. Slayton as an early stage venture/angel capital firm. Slayton Capital invests primarily in early stage high tech companies -- and only in companies where Mr. Slayton knows the principals personally and those that produce a significant social impact from its products/services. Slayton Capital invests in relatively few companies (2 to 4 per year). Slayton Capital works carefully with each of its portfolio companies to add significant value in the following areas: Business Strategy, Executive and Board recruiting, Business Development, Digital Marketing, Equity and/or Debt Fundraising. Slayton Capital was an early investor in Salesforce.com, Google, Oakley Networks and Bloom Energy.
