ATP is an early stage venture capital organization changing the way research-borne innovations impact the world. We are not a traditional VC, we are a platform. A platform of interconnected resources with the mission of creating tangible value from the brightest, yet most underserved minds in society.
Example area of focus: US Heartland & Canadian universities receive over $58B of research funding annually yet are severely under utilized by the traditional venture capital industry. ATP works directly with innovators from the early research-translation to later phases, with particular emphasis on Pre-seed (Launch), Seed (Nurture) and Series A (Scale) funding stages. ATP powers the earliest stages of firm development, creating returns for our investors and sustainable impact in such focus areas as: gender-disparity access and economic development in underserved regions.
The ATP team brings together the critical components of the Research-to-Development (R-to-D) ecosystem, specifically:
- INNOVATORS with national lab, university, and corporate R&D groups;
- ENTREPRENEURS: both first-time and seasoned executives;
- INVESTMENT PARTNERS: top-tier VC firms and our own syndication networks;
- CORPORATIONS: the key stakeholder to ensure Demand meets Supply. This diversity brings value-add from zero to one and beyond.
