Partnering with Families, Creating Companies, Building Wealth
Solidus Company is a partnership that invests in high growth businesses to build and sustain wealth, create important companies, and foster entrepreneurial success.
Over more than a decade, Solidus has specialized in early stage investing, maintaining an evergreen portfolio that advantages investors with broad exposure to diverse types and phases of companies.
Transforming Visionary Concepts into Thriving Businesses
Solidus takes a holistic, long-range approach to building companies. With a focus on three business areas—(1) healthcare services and IT, (2) applied technology, and (3) information services and media—the Solidus Team identifies and invests in early stage companies. We actively participate in their growth and development, applying a systematic process aimed at maximizing the potential of each individual enterprise. Bright Horizons, Investment Scorecard, Medfusion, and iPayment are examples of our success stories.
Catalyzing Entrepreneurial Communities
The Solidus Engine
Promising opportunities to build outstanding companies emerge every year.
To help develop these opportunities, we built the Solidus Engine. By harnessing an extensive network of experienced entrepreneurs, and operating according to the Solidus methodology, the Solidus Engine fosters business growth through three progressive stages: Seed, Angel, and "A-round" Venture.
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."
These two stages, added to our longstanding proficiency in the Venture Stage, make the Solidus Engine a sustainable platform for fostering more home-grown companies while also generating exceptional returns for our investors.
Solidus Company's role as a participant in TNInvestco, a statewide effort to spur economic development, has been instrumental in creating the Solidus Engine. Solidus was selected by the State of Tennessee in 2009 to be part of TNInvestco.
