Investors in Materials Technologies
Although my usual stomping ground is in the mobile/IT/web space/storage/cloud space (with some biotech and cleantech as well), I have a number of clients building businesses in the materials space using carbon fiber, aerogels and other materials. Some of them are clearly green companies, but these companies don’t necessarily fit the “traditional” tech company profile that VCs like to invest in. They are really platform technologies with applications in many huge markets across a variety of industry verticals. These entrepreneurs are trying to build very big businesses.
So, trying and get something like that financed can be a challenge. The usual VC suspects don’t often have the domain expertise.
Anyway, the point of this post is that I am interested in meeting VCs (and other investors) who have an interest in material technologies.
