Build and invest in science companies

Build and invest in science companies

Our vision is a systematic, optimised approach to building and backing science companies.
The aim is to produce “Holy Grails” – companies that will radically transform their sector.
We don’t start with university IP that’s hot or on-trend, but with distilling market and technical hypotheses for high risk ventures.
We then recruit the right founding teams and form partnerships with academic institutions, industry and investors to support each of our ventures from day one.

Develop technical domain specialists into founders

Develop technical domain specialists into founders

Becoming a founder at DSV
Starting a carbon capture or a therapeutics company can sound challenging to say the least. The required know-how, equipment and capital are the key reasons why the majority of science startups are university spin-outs. 
In our 3 years of company building, however, we’ve repeatedly demonstrated that with the right people and partnerships in place, we can launch companies that incumbents believe are impossible.
We spend months distilling both market and tech hypotheses making sure that our founders don`t waste their time and effort on opportunities that are simply not worth pursuing. Our focus is on opportunities that we know have a huge commercial potential and are likely to change entire industries. See current opportunities.

Help curate deep tech investor community

Help curate deep tech investor community

Independent of the work that we do at DSV we couldn’t find any community that allows serious deep tech angels and venture investors to meet each other, discuss opportunity areas and deals. Open events are noisy in every sense, angel groups come with far too much overhead.
So we’re trialling a series of dinners supported by a dedicated slack group and access to DSVs deep analysis across areas ranging from gene therapies for neurodegeneration to photonic qubits. Access will be via invite based on deal history, to apply please complete the form below.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself, we’ll review, connect you with the slack community and let you know about upcoming dinners.
