The Boundary Impact Ventures thesis
in 140 characters:
Invest in high-impact scientific technologies too late for grants but not practically investable through by traditional VC
What is impact investing for science?
The science funding ecosystem, historically serviced by a bifurcated capital mix of grants and investments, has many elements that make it a natural fit for impact investing. This post describes our thesis and approach for bringing impact investments to science as an asset class.
We view science as an alternative asset class, with non-correlated risk-return characteristics that are attractive to deep value-oriented investors. We invest broadly across all scientific categories, with a preference for technologies that replace existing "scientific infrastructure". This allows for our investments to be structured with a balance for long-term returns upside and medium-term yield.
