    Solidus Company is a private investment firm partnership that pursues a strategy of long-term investments in both the public and private equity markets. The firm manages four funds: Solidus Company LP, Solidus-TNInvestco, DeSoto Partners, and JumpStart Foundry. Solidus pursues investment opportunities in the three primary industries: Healthcare Services, Applied Technology and Information Services/Media. The Solidus-TNInvestco fund follows investment guidelines established by the State of Tennesse (see TNInvestco). For the Seed Stage, Solidus has established a growing system of micro-fund accelerators. These include Jumpstart Foundry, Seed Hatchery, Venture Incite, and Co-starts, and are located in Nashville, Memphis, Oak Ridge, and Chattanooga, respectively. For the Angel Stage, the Solidus Academy serves as a diverse collection of expert mentors, coaches, and board members, and enables Solidus Company to fill the critically-needed function of 'lead angel.' JumpStart Foundry (see profile) is a micro-fund designed to provide $15,000 each to between 10 and 14 entrepreneurs per year.
