    Organized in 2001, The Trelys Funds focuses on entrepreneurs located primarily in South Carolina and the surrounding region. Trelys focuses on early- to middle-staged financings in a variety of industry sectors including information technologies, communications technologies, biotechnologies and life sciences. The firm's typical investment ranges between $500,000 and $3 million. Trelys normally does not consider seed stage investments, but rather helps commercialize products or services that are in the marketplace, already producing revenues, but not necessarily profits.
