We aspire to be the first call for pre-seed/seed founders focused on component technologies and enabling hardware advances, with a focus on silicon, materials, optics, and sensors. We will be the first institutional capital and strategic partner to help founders get from concept to product-market fit. And, as a Louisville KY-based firm, we believe world-class components founders can and will emerge outside Silicon Valley, so we will be actively investing across all geographies within the U.S. Lastly, we are independently controlled and financial returns-driven, but with deep ties to Samtec Electronics that enable us to move quickly, invest with conviction, and leverage partnerships and scale to unlock $1B+ potential.
