WHAT WE DO

.01 FILLING
THE VOID

As corporate R&D budgets continue to tighten and venture capital chases later stage investments, we focus exclusively on companies that are selling value-added improvements to products and services that have already been accepted by industry.

.02 RESEARCH
INTO VALUE

Our target companies have received significant non-dilutive funding helping to de-risk technologies and define market applications.

.03 TAPPING
UNDERSERVED REGIONS

We are focused on the Appalachian Mountain, Ohio Valley and Great Lakes regions, featuring the most broad-based and robust energy & materials research and industrial activities in the US.

.04 PROVIDING
BUSINESS LEADERSHIP

We have a 20-year history of providing well place investment capital and directly managing opportunities to help establish strategic direction and create value. Our expansive relationships with industry, universities, and national labs provide unique insight into technical and business solutions.
