We are driven to sift through the many plans we receive annually to find the 1-2 teams where engagement makes sense and where our partnership with the company can provide access to early large customers, funded Joint Development Agreements, and introductions to potential acquirers.  The areas of tech where we invest are not so fashionable but we’re okay being uncool. In the areas of clean tech, optics and advanced materials we believe we are the go-to firm for seed funding.

Our due diligence typically lasts 60-180 days. It comprises working directly with entrepreneurs to stress-test the fundamental premise of their business plan. We make certain they learn to be their own best critics.

We have an open model and a set of systems that each venture adopts. Accounting systems, planning systems and other elements are all online. This allows us to interact with company leaders over the web, no matter where on the planet we are.
