    Description:

    Advantage Capital Partners is a group of venture capital partnerships that has raised more than $2 billion in capital. Founded in 1992, the firm has grown to include offices in Missouri, Louisiana, New York, Texas, California, Illinois, Florida, Mississippi and Washington, D.C., with affiliated offices in Alabama, Colorado and Wisconsin. The firm's focus is primarily in the Communication, Information Technology, Life Science and Energy sectors in markets that are underserved by other private equity funds. Advantage makes investments in companies at all stages except seed round financings. Advantage's typical initial investment ranges from $500,000 to $2 million. Advantage also provides small business financing through BizCapital, Advantage Capital's wholly owned non-depository financial institution that is licensed by the Federal Government to make SBA and USDA loans. Established in 1999, BizCapital's primary mission hinges on offering small companies competitive loan structures, which are government guaranteed in nature. BizCapital investments typically are straight debt instruments, debt with warrants, or convertible debentures in the preferred industries of basic manufacturing, marine transportation, retail, health services, and energy. Investments range from as small as $250,000 to as large as $5,000,000, and in most cases are secured or semi-secured by fixed asset collateral. In 2005, Advantage Capital also established a Small Business Finance Fund of $32 million for companies and entrepreneurs in low-income communities.
