Main Industry: Venture Capital
WHAT WE LOOK FOR? We think one of the main sources of innovation is at the junction of industry sectors. Therefore we focus on cross industry sectors and interdisciplinary projects to discover innovations occurring at the nexus of technology domains where capital efficient solutions can unlock significant value. In addition to a competitive edge that stems from technology and intellectual property rights, we are looking for quantifiable market potential and the right entrepreneurial skill set for that market. We constantly seek business models where such innovations are employed in a transformative fashion to disrupt existing markets. SECTOR FOCUS DCP has a generalist technology focus with an emphasis on bio-tech, green-tech, agri-tech, life sciences, materials & nanotechnology, IT, robotics and mechatronics. We will entertain submissions in other technology areas. However, we do not invest in e-commerce business models. IPRS We require our investments to have a strong technology component that is unique with a concrete intellectual property right (patents & copyrights) or trade secret component. The technology we invest in must have a clear, short to mid-term commercialization path from lab to market.
