Lux Capital Company Profile

19:22 EDT 19th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Lux Capital is a research-driven investment firm focused on building businesses of lasting value. Lux uncovers and creates market-leading companies by leveraging our vast network, proprietary business intelligence and unique access. Lux’s investment strategy ensures our portfolio companies are better connected, have deeper insight, and command industry leadership faster than their competitors.Historically, great investment franchises were built during a particular era and around waves of opportunity. In 2000, while nearly all venture investors focused upon Internet, enterprise hardware and software, optical networking and other IT and communication investments, Lux held a contrarian conviction. We saw opportunity in the neglected fields of material science and mesoscale physics and in their intersection with other scientific disciplines (later referred to as “nanotechnology”). Twelve months of original research, interviews, and site visits to leading universities revealed nanotechnology was a nascent field substantiated by a growing pace of scientific breakthroughs and government funding. Early research also gave Lux the opportunity to become the leader in nanotechnology, which was still off the radar of top-tier investors, the media, and the public.
