startup business support

Actuator is a new model for business development support

We focus on supporting new businesses in large, emerging markets including:

  • Digital Health (the convergence of the Internet and healthcare)
  • Cleantech
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Digital Energy
  • Within these areas, we include devices, data, communication, information technology and services.
  • Impact Companies


WHAT WE DO

We view ourselves as the connective tissue—the covalent bond—that brings resources together toward the common goals of:

  • Elevating the business potential of our portfolio companies
  • Improving the ability of our selected industries to positively influence people’s lives
  • Helping foster and improve the success rate of innovation and entrepreneurship in America
  • Providing a model for sustainable innovation, where revenues from commercialized science and inventions can be used to continue research and development of new opportunities


We work to build lasting, great companies—companies that build tangible, real value. Companies that create opportunities for successful exits. And companies that meet the financial goals of everyone involved.

“Exits are the best part of being an entrepreneur or investor. It’s when we get financially rewarded for all of the creativity, hard work, investment and risk we put into our companies.”
