The Slater Technology Fund is an independently chartered economic development fund dedicated to the support of entrepreneurs and technologists with the passion and vision to build high-value businesses in Rhode Island. Leveraging state and federal funding, Slater focuses its resources on supporting entrepreneurs who have the vision, leadership and commitment to build substantial commercial enterprises. Slater typically invests at the inception stage in the development of a new venture, often based upon ideas and technologies originating in academic institutions and/or government research laboratories located within the region. In most cases, investments are premised upon the possibility of raising substantial follow-on financing, from venture capital investors or from strategic partners, with a view toward accelerating the generation of significant numbers of high-value, high-wage jobs over the intermediate to longer-term.
