We invest in core technologies that pioneer the products of tomorrow.
Are you currently doing research or have you already developed a technology for consumer electronics? Would you like to commercialize your findings?
Researchers that work with TandemLaunch can see their technology excel through our technology expertise, industry engagement, targeted investment, and high-caliber collaborator sourcing.
TandemLaunch specializes in the technologies you can expect to find in any household, more specifically in terms of audio, video, display, capture, sensors, multi-media devices, and human-computer interaction modalities (e.g. speech, touch, gesture, smell).
We are interested in technologies that are at a stage where a patent-protected or patent-protectable technical breakthrough has been made, most of the scientific risk associated with the invention has been eliminated, but significant engineering risk may remain. This would translate to a Technology Readiness Level of 3 or higher.
Our core strengths
Our corporate partners provide our portfolio companies with unparalleled early market insight and privileged access to industry networks.
Our teams are given access to turn-key engineering, operational resources, business/tech colleagues, and up to $500k in seed financing.
We aim at advancing the future of consumer technology, from eye tracking in smart TVs and handheld devices, to automated sound engineering.
Technology evaluation process
We validate a technology’s fit with our program, scientific validity, and intellectual property status.
We assemble a founding team and leverage our industry network to get early market feedback.
We provide up to $500k to incubate the project to the point of an independent company.
Companies graduate via sustainable growth revenues or Series A financing to become stand-alone ventures.
We received useful and thoughtful feedback on the commercial potential of our innovation. Our office looks forward to benefiting in the future from the valuable expertise and contact with the consumer electronics market that TandemLaunch offers.
