BLACKHORN VENTURES


funding the RESOURCE EFFICIENCY age

 

Today, billions of people are moving toward a higher standard of living, and global consumption is rapidly depleting Earth’s resource capacity. We are in a unique period of history that will be defined by investment in resource efficient technologies. This is what we do. 

Previous technological revolutions have spurred innovation while expending tremendous natural resources. Today it is critical that we innovate to use resources efficiently. The global economy is primed to address this with an age of efficiency, built on the infrastructure of the information and communications technology (ICT) revolution.

FOCUS


FOCUS


 

 Focused on the intersection of technology and resource efficiency. The last thirty years have brought about widespread connectivity, with cheap bandwidth, processing, and sensors. These technologies have been applied to making our individual lives more efficient, and capital has poured in to fund innovation. Blackhorn is focused on funding the innovation that will deploy these technologies to industry, softening our impact on natural resources while at the same time driving margins and sustained growth for decades to come. 

 

 A few things we look for

Internet of Things

IoT will enable industries to create the feedback loops that allow for the optimization and preservation of material assets. Manufacturing equipment will last longer, have less down time, and use fewer resources.

Artificial Intelligence

Wide deployment of sensors creates universes of data, AI will take this information and use it to better allocate and manage resources. Water infrastructure will be more reliable, less water will be wasted, and quality will be ensured.
