Which VC should I work with?

We aren’t your typical VC

Nowadays, deep tech founders of promising startups have a wide variety of funding choices from traditional VCs to corporates and accelerators.

What makes us different is that we are a technical team and hands-on in helping to identify customers, industrialize the technology and build commercial applications. We also emphasize open innovation and collaboration with corporate partners as a path to accelerate growth.

When we have skin in your game you also get our bodies, brains, time, attention and exceptional resources.

People just like you

We know where founders are coming from because we’ve been there too. We are experienced problem-solvers, technology builders, business leaders and creative individuals who work with our founders to find practical solutions to the many challenges they face.
