A critical component of that network is our growing list of corporate partners. We have built strong working relationships with the likes of Shell Oil, 3M, Dow and IBM, to name a few.
These companies have the deep resources to benefit our portfolio companies in numerous ways. They partner with us to bring a promising product to market. They’ll open their testing labs to assist us with scientific due diligence. And they provide keen market insights so we can make better investment decisions. Our corporate partners are a valuable resource for our portfolio companies and our investors.
