Advances in underlying materials and processes are revolutionizing almost every industry.

We look for transformative Advanced Materials innovations, including novel engineered materials, new device architectures, and advanced process technologies and tools. We invest in innovations that enable entirely new products, dramatic performance improvements of existing products, enhanced-efficiency, and/or greener manufacturing processes for major industries such as Consumer ElectronicsDrug DeliveryChemicalsEnergy Generation, Energy StorageSolarWater, and Building Materials to name a few.

Estimates of the industrial impact of Advanced Materials innovations over the next decade exceed $3 Trillion.

Reinventing Venture Capital

Advanced Materials is a significant yet under-served area of innovation by venture capitalists.  It requires specialized knowledge of materials sciences, industrial value chains, and business models.  At PVP, we have developed a unique value-add approach based on successfully founding, operating, and investing in advanced material start-ups over the past 30 years.

Our Team

We understand that teams are the most important ingredient in any start-up. Meet our team. We have an unparalleled success rate, with some failures too. We are constantly learning and enjoy working with entrepreneurs.

Strategic Partners

PVP enjoys strategic relationships with a diversified consortium of industry leading corporations. Our strategic partners have a combined market capitalization exceeding $380 Billion and represent complimentary industry verticals, value chain positions, and geographic concentrations. These partnerships help define industry needs and opportunities. Our portfolio companies enjoy access to this deep set of potential customer and supply chain partner relationships. And, we make business development introductions between partners and promising start-ups, even if the start-up is not an investment fit for our funds.
