Their investments range in size from as little as $100,000 to as much as $10 or $15 million. Typically, they invest $3 to $5 million initially and expect to invest $5 to $15 million over the life of a company. They invest for the long haul, not ‘quick flips,’ and look for entrepreneurs with a similar perspective.
