Our Mission

Ken Malone, one of our co-founders, describes the uniqueness of Early Charm Ventures:

We are the management team, the operators, and the entrepreneurs. We don’t just write checks and pop in for board meetings. We show up to our labs, our production facilities, and our offices every day to do all the heavy lifting for our portfolio companies.

Our scientists and engineers work across our entire portfolio, never just for one venture. This brings extraordinary expertise to the earliest stages of product development. The lack of silos fosters creativity and attracts the most collaborative people.

Our Ventures

Synergy with our existing ventures is important to us, so we look for opportunities that fit with our current capabilities in Drug Design, Blue Economy, Advanced Materials, and Engineered Products.

Because synergy between our companies is so strong, the individual companies are seldom as valuable alone than as a part of the whole. Thus, we aren’t focused on exit strategies and quick flips. We are focused on building sustainable businesses through revenue, and on expanding opportunities by retaining our team.
