Setting a new standard for method-driven venture capital.
We identify and invest in critical global-scale challenges, and fund the companies with deployable solutions that address these problems.
We invest in secular problems, not technologies
Creative Ventures is a deep technology fund that starts from markets, not solutions.
Addressing labor shortages in manufacturing, construction, logistics, and food production.
Controlling spiraling healthcare costs stemming from aging and chronic disease.
Feeding the world sustainably with continued population and standard of living growth.
Lowering carbon impact and providing the resources needed to continue growth, sustainably
Diverse problems require diverse solutions
investments with underrepresented founders
investments with a female founder
investments with first-time founders
How we’re different
Market before Solution
We believe our market-first approach and strict investment protocols are the surest way to secure exponential growth opportunities while mitigating the biggest risks investing in deep technology.
Solutions for Today
We’re not in the business of predicting the future. We don’t take on R&D risks with unknown horizons. We invest in scalable technologies primed to meet existing market demand.
We are the most rigorous manager in VC because the sectors we invest in require it. Our managing partners and GPs include financial analysts, operators, industrialists, and PhD technologists with deep subject-matter expertise.

- Everyone is looking at the wrong jobs numbersEveryone is up in arms about the April jobs report. The US added 266,000 jobs during the month, but it was a fraction of what was expected and did nothing to change the unemployment rate. At the same time, we had a viral TikTok video of a McDonald’s in Texas apologizing for being short staffed because “No one wants to work anymore.” Conservatives are quite loudly implicating the cause of this (and other similar anecdotes from small businesses)are caused by supplements to unemployment benefits and other pandemic aid discouraging work. So which is it? …well, probably both.
- The Business of HealthcareThe sheer scale of the healthcare system is mesmerizing. In the US alone, $11,072 per capita spending (in 2019) and at around 320 million in population means that we’re looking at $3 trillion in annual spending. And even though the US is the largest spender, spending per capita has been rising across the entire world, driving healthcare to make up a larger and larger share of total global GDP. But, as experienced founders know, the sheer size of a market alone doesn’t matter that much. What matters is how attainable it is for your specific business and business model. For founders in the healthcare sector, this means avoiding the number one faux pax; forgetting the “business” part of the healthcare system.
