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.

Outside of a limited number of fairly specialized applications, data moats are becoming less and less secure.
