Pilatus is a venture capital firm driven by innovation.
We seek to join forces with early stage enterprises that develop high-impact technologies with global reach. We aim to provide guidance to perfect, protect, and commercialize these innovations. Even uphill.
FROM INNOVATION TO VALUE CREATION
Our investment approach centers on the technology above all. We believe that innovative technology is the fundamental building block upon which businesses are built.
We partner with early-stage enterprises and help them develop and commercialize their high-impact technologies. In doing this we enable our partners to profit from these applied innovations and create global impact. Our investment thesis is based on groundbreaking research from Professor David J. Teece on Profiting From Innovation and our operating framework is guided by Dynamic Capabilities, published in his latest book.
THE NEXT FRONTIER
From life science diagnostics to healthcare delivery systems, new technologies are creating novel treatments, therapies, and insights.
Reducing material waste, energy consumption, and environmental impact at large. We believe these objectives are imperative for our future and also have enormous economic potential.
We believe the landscape of retail is changing rapidly and there is enormous potential for innovators—from supply chain to the end consumer—across the breadth of retail.
Above all, we are interested in technological innovation and are always curious about new ideas on the horizon.
The Pilatus team has diverse strengths across many disciplines and industries.
We have deep academic foundations and an unwavering commitment to furthering innovation. We are a group of C-Suite leaders who have spent decades investing, building, and operating successful businesses. We strive to leverage our expertise and networks to identify, evaluate, and enable our portfolio.
