Slayton Capital Investment Record as of Dec 2020.

Founded officially in 2001, Slayton Capital has invested in 23 companies of which 7 have been successful with two (Google and Salesforce.com) being among the most successful companies in Silicon Valley history.  Of the remaining 14 companies 10 have been closed or are on life support while 4 are going concerns with 3 of those looking especially promising.

Slayton Capital was forced to sell its large positions in Google and Salesforce.com (which were then public companies with operations in Bermuda) to clear State Department conflict of interest rules when Mr. Slayton was appointed the US Chief of Mission (aka Ambassador) to Bermuda in 2005 by President George W. Bush. Slayton was extended twice by President Obama (the only Bush appointed Ambassador so honored) and was awarded the Distinguished Foreign Service Award by members of the Congressional Black Caucus in May of 2010 (the only Republican in US history to be so honored).  

Mr. Slayton restarted Slayton Capital in 2011 and has made seven investments, some of which are doing extremely well. More can be seen on Ambassador Slayton’s career at www.gregorywslayton.com
