Remarkable founders have a vision that will shift the future.
At Tectonic Ventures…
We find and partner with those independent thinkers who have what it takes to realize their vision.
We join teams from the first spark of a new idea and nurture them through world-class execution.
We invest time and energy as trusted advisers, starting even before a company is founded.
We not only provide capital, experience, and an expansive network, we bring the mindset of an entrepreneur — we know the fear, the adrenaline, the hard work, the rough times, and the triumph.
We do all this with a new approach to venture investing -- rather than an individual sport, the entire Tectonic team works collaboratively with all of our companies, bringing together our complimentary skills, relationships and past experiences to support our entrepreneurs.
Together, we can uncover earth-shattering opportunities among the shifts and innovations happening in the business landscape.
Together, we can reshape the horizon.
