Clients Past and Present

The fabric of America is woven from individuals who have demonstrated the willingness to assume tremendous risks to accomplish things that most people would consider impossible. The very foundation of the country was built upon people who had a vision for what could be. They boarded ships, travelled great distances, faced tremendous perils upon arriving, yet pressed on and carved a civilization out of a wilderness. The explorers and visionaries of today are entrepreneurs. The very meaning of the word embodies who they are- the ones who assume the risk. 

The Sheltowee team is committed to promoting the entrepreneurial spirit around the world through the investment of capital, time, know-how and resources.  Sheltowee has assisted many entrepreneurs and companies in the commercialization of technologies.  In the coming years Sheltowee will be commercializing cutting edge technologies that have the potential for major societal change.  Sheltowee will continue to build a portfolio of companies and a global network of people, who are working together to implement technologies that will make the world a better place.

The History of Our Name

Sheltowee was the name that was given to Daniel Boone by the Shawnee Indians when he was adopted into the tribe in 1778 by Chief Blackfish.  Chief Blackfish thought that Daniel had broad shoulders and looked like a turtle, and the name Sheltowee means "big turtle".  Daniel Boone was a courageous American entrepreneur and frontiersman.  He blazed new trails into the wilderness and civilization followed him.  We at Sheltowee hope to live up to the legacy of our namesake and help to blaze new frontiers in science, technology, and entrepreneurism.
