Actuator is a collaboration between two of Colorado’s top resources for entrepreneurs: Covalency and Innosphere

Our collaboration resulted in the creation and launch of a new program that deliberately aligns the interests of the startup, the investor and the support team to create early, managed exits.  Actuator is the first of its kind program and is built on the work of Basil Peters who authored the book titled “Early Exits.”

Covalency is a partnership of experienced C-level executives who have spent their careers building successful technology companies.  Our mission is work with a select number of companies to help actualize success by providing ongoing active management of portfolio companies. 

Innosphere is Colorado’s leading science and technology focuses incubator supporting high growth potential companies in cleantech, software/hardware and biosciences.
