    XMi High Growth Development Fund (XHG) is a recipient of the TNInvestco program pursuant to the State of Tennessee 'Tennessee Small Business Investment Company Credit Act' passed in 2009. The firm not only provides capital but mentorship, expertise and support to companies throughout Tennessee. XMi will invest up to $3 million in companies which have the potential for exponential growth and can create jobs throughout Tennessee. While the firm typically makes control-oriented investments, XMi has extensive experience with a variety of deal structures, including minority investments, growth capital and partnering with other venture capital firms. The fund will seek to make investments in Tennessee-based, privately held companies with fewer than 100 employees, and primarily focus on start-up and early stage ventures. XMi is open to reviewing all industry opportunities but has particular interest in: Healthcare, Clean Energy, Automotive, Privatization and Logistics, Manufacturing, Business Services, Technology and Informatics.
