As we seek to answer your questions, note that in the statements below, we may at times refer to SLC Group Holdings as SLC for short.
SLC Group Holdings is an angel investment company seeking to find budding Entrepreneurs who need financial assistance and mentorship to take their company to the next level and are seeking an investor in exchange for equity in their company.
Every product and entrepreneur are different, and much relies on your current progress and strategic plan. SLC Group Holdings prefers to be a minority shareholder with the entrepreneur maintaining the majority share in their company.
Yes, SLC has several different opportunities outside of an equity position. Entrepreneurs may qualify for:
SLC welcomes submissions across most product categories. Each product submission is reviewed for product attributes, uniqueness, market and sales potential, and portfolio synergy.
Due to the number of product submissions, it is not possible for either company to enter into a Non-Disclosure Agreement for initial product submissions. SLC will, however, enter into a non-disclosure if your application, once reviewed, is something SLC would like to continue to explore with you.
It is preferred that you have a finished product when submitting and when possible, existing sales to show proof of customer response. At a minimum a working prototype should be available.
SLC has contacts in the manufacturing arena that we can refer you to.
No, SLC does not charge for evaluations
Due to the volume of product submissions, we are unable to speak directly with applicants. You will be contacted directly by a member of SLC Group Holdings if there is interest in discussing your product further.
No, please be sure to include everything in your one online application
No, all product submissions must be completed electronically through the SLC Group Holdings website.
During the initial product submission process, SLC does not accept product samples. If you are contacted by a member of the SLC team for further conversations, you will be sent an NDA, questionnaires and be asked to submit a sample. The number of samples and address where to send them will be communicated at that time.
Please note we will be unable to return samples sent so if this poses a problem, please just make sure the team knows when it is requested.
Make sure to provide a complete and accurate description of your product, claims, testing, distribution and current sales. Be sure you outline the products benefits- so we might be able to “see” them from the submission.
Additionally, we want to hear your story! Tell us why you made the product. Did it satisfy a need you had, or did you “re-imagine” a product to better serve your needs? Either way, we want to know the “why” behind the brand. Make sure you tell us about the brand name as well. Some names are easy to understand but if there is a significance with your name, color or logo, be sure to include that information too. Do you have a patent? Have you trademarked your name and logo?
We want to know as much as we can about you. It’s not just the product we invest in, we invest in the person too.
Please take your time submitting. Due to the quantity of submissions we receive, it is very difficult to make revisions on applications while they are in our review cycle.
Typically, you should expect to hear from SLC within 4 weeks of submitting, but please know that holidays, and travel schedules, etc. might push the timeline a week or so.
Unfortunately, no. Please allow us the proper time frame to effectively review your submission.
Once you have heard back from us regarding a product, please do not resubmit that product , unless within the submission process SLC reached out and gave feedback which would then cause you time to fix, change or alter your product. Then re-submitting would take a different path and you would not go through the same website link. If you have additional products in the future, you are always welcome to submit those.
There are several reasons SLC might determine not to invest:
