We’re focused on funding entrepreneurs in the fastest growing industries: robotics, AI, clean energy, wearables, space tech, IoT, healthcare, smart home and more.

We make investments to help our startup founders cover prototyping fees. We co-invest with incubators, accelerators and VCs, and have an efficient due diligence process that will result in funding a first round of manufacturing.
You can raise capital with us if you are a seed/early stage hardware startup incorporated either in the US, Canada or in Japan.
