Based in Aarhus, Denmark, we are a Venture Lab for hard things, worth doing.
Contrary to what many may think, the technological progress has stagnated for nearly four decades. Enabling and fundamental innovations such as the practical use of electricity, the telecommunications infrastructure, automatic computing, automotive transportation, heavier than air flight, genomics, and many other examples, all arose prior to the 1970s. What we have witnessed as progress within a generation is largely the application of these technologies in increasingly refined solutions. The latest wave of “softwaretization”, have increased operational efficiencies in multiple industries but also offset culturally and personal demand for tangible products and interactions, by web and app-based experiences.
Our core thesis revolves around overcoming challenges in commercialization of scientific breakthroughs by providing the facility between scientists and entrepreneurs. We extend the conventional 10-year venture capital horizon, allowing for the maturation of technologies and customer demand.
We focus specifically the hard sciences: physics, chemistry and their derived engineering disciplines. The markets and industries we work with are:
- Military and Defense
- Energy systems
- Sustainable Resource Extraction
- Access to space and ocean
- Autonomous systems
- AI for physical applications
- Meta-materials and composites.
We have great hopes for the future, and dare to bring it about. Come join us!
