Writing the Physical Layer
Computation has improved our lives in remarkable ways, but the physical layer has remained largely unchanged.
We are often the first check into a company. Our unique model for early-stage investment allows us to have an outsized impact on the earliest stages of a venture.
Let’s Talk Molecules And Atoms
We can keep up. From bench to bedside to boardroom, our team has been on the front lines. Our understanding of the science and technology breakthroughs we’re evaluating is personal.
Chemistry and biology are the software of our physical world.
To solve some of the greatest challenges of our time, the best thing we can do is harness nature’s code. Thanks to next-generation sequencing and subsequent interpretation technologies, as well as AI and hyper-scale compute, we can now model and even alter nature’s source code to our liking.
Imagine a world in which humans and nature function in harmony.
We believe the greatest advancements of our lifetime will be the result of reprogramming chemistry and biology using creative technology platforms.
Our portfolio companies are commercializing science that is dramatically changing how the world works, from nano to whole earth scales.
