About Us

Upstate NY is home to leading corporate and academic research institutions that produce cutting-edge technologies. In addition, Upstate holds a large number of successful middle-market firms that are ready for management transition and growth – eagerly seeking capital.

These significant opportunities greatly outweigh the limited available risk-capital, leading to more investor favorable terms, such as:

•  Lower valuations: as much as 50% below national averages
•  High capital efficiency: talent & offices: ~1/2 similar costs nationally
