Surviving and Thriving
in an era of
Cascading Change

The challenges are enormous, but the opportunities are far greater.


Creating solutions to the underlying problems requires new approaches and different relationships.


We focus our resources on those areas where there is a clear intersection of market opportunity and subject matter expertise provided by our co-anchor national labs, and the deep capabilities of our Fortune 500 enterprise partners.


We are the nexus the world has been waiting for.


We thoughtfully connect and align the right people and right resources at the right time.


We provide one-of-a-kind assets that support the most promising technologies.


Sourced from our lab partners and our global network, we match potential high-impact technologies with unique technical and business resources, capital, early customers, and early exit opportunities.

The Innovation Corridor Today

Our connections are many. Our unique value is the ability to creatively identify and link together passionate and talented people who work for high-value, but traditionally siloed organizations.

We build cooperative, exceptionally effective teams of collaborators. Working together, we invest in high-impact companies and projects, and look for solutions to some of the world’s most difficult but important problems.

Our technology and investment platform facilitates the creation of inter-organizational, multi-disciplinary teams via deep relationships with national labs, Fortune 500 companies, global financial institutions, and governmental entities.

With over 3,000 research scientists and staff, state-of-the-art testing and validation capabilities, and the highest caliber enterprise resources, the Innovation Corridor can find value where others cannot.

We leverage technical, financial, and organizational efficiencies to develop and de-risk investment and innovation commercialization.

Relying on some of the world’s most respected subject matter experts, we support innovations related to the energy/water/food nexus, emerging technologies, and the built environment.

We rely on the expertise of the nation’s top research scientists, enterprise subject matter experts, and a global channel partner network, to focus on investment opportunities in:

Advanced Energy, Energy Efficiency, (Supercomputing)/Compute, AI/Machine Learning, Autonomous and Connected Vehicles, Electric Drivetrain Infrastructure, Smart Cities IoT, Innovations in the Electric Utility Sector, and Edge Computing.

The Innovation Corridor partners believe we have an opportunity to leave the world a bit better than when we arrived – we do not just want to survive, we want to thrive in a world that’s changing faster than ever.

If you want to run fast, run alone.

If you want to run far, run together.
