Direct investments range from $250k to $750k, with syndicated financings ranging from $1.5 million to $6 million. The firm invests in companies near to LSA champion or co-investors. Since 2005, LSA has invested nearly $50 million in over 40 companies which have received an additional $1 billion in follow-on funding from VCs and strategics.
