Below is a sample of investments from the Q1 and Q2 rolling funds. We have co-invested from the fund with Lowercarbon, Founders Fund, Gigafund, IndieBio, HAX, At One Ventures, Draper Associates, Breyer, Acequia Capital and others.
Trilobio: Automation + app store for biology, disrupting the $126B laboratory automation information management market.
Unicorn Biotechnologies: Next-generation biomanufacturing platform to affordably and rapidly scale cultivated cell manufacturing - projected $400B market.
Cache DNA: First operating system for DNA data storage, the “Google” for bio-information.
Modern Synthesis: Crafts the next generation of materials (starting with leather replacement) with biology - $1.5T market.
Simplifyber: Biodegradable cellulose material + an automated molding process to create 100% waste free clothing with 60% less industrial steps - $1.5T market.
Concert Bio: Full-stack microbiome optimization platform for agriculture and aquaculture - projected $2T market.
Atomo Coffee: Sustainable coffee made without using a single coffee bean - $100B market.
Spira: High-value carbon negative ingredients from genetically engineered Spirulina.
California Cultured: Makes real chocolate by plant cellular agriculture - $150B market.
Muddy Machines: creates autonomous agricultural robots that can automate any labor-intensive field process at-scale.
Photon Marine: developing EV propulsion systems for B2B marine fleets, starting with marine tourism and transportation (whale watching, scuba and snorkel operators, etc).
Beyond Aero (YC W22): Makes long-range electric aircraft possible using hydrogen-electric propulsion.
Magrathea Materials: Creating a +$100B market for magnesium to be used as a low carbon, low cost, lightweight structural metal - dramatically reducing CO2 emissions and the need for mining.
Impossible Mining (YC W22): Builds underwater robots that responsibly mine & refine battery metals from the seafloor.
Passtur: Building the food factories of the future. System of nimble, highly automated production centers uses less labor, has fewer emissions, and eliminates inefficiencies.
Renaissance Fusion: Developing a new nuclear fusion reactor using a stellarator design.
Phuc Labs: Machine vision particle sorting to remediate and reclaim valuable particles from fluids - revolutionizing lithium mining and battery recycling.
Below is a sample of ‘on thesis’ investments led by Michael Luciani and Sundeep Ahuja via the C3 syndicate in 2021:
Cemvita Factory: ‘Microbes-as-a-Service’ platform which creates custom microbes for heavy industry clients to use to decarbonize (and lower the cost of) their chemical inputs.
Colossal: building the SpaceX of biotech (a pioneering and category-creating company) by tackling one of biotech’s biggest moonshots—bringing back the wooly mammoth within the next 5 years.
Dannaa: A moonshot bet for the wireless electrification of ... everything.
Compound Foods: food tech company building "impossible foods for coffee."
Gelatex: Plant-based nano-fibers allowing lab grown meat to be indistinguishable from farm grown in terms of taste and texture while still being affordable.
microTERRA: Creating a novel ingredient that the plant-based food industry critically needs, in a way that saves the planet.
Rubi Labs: unlocks CO2 as a natural resource for making essential materials, starting with carbon-negative textiles for apparel.
POW.bio: Fermentation as a Service. A picks and shovels play for the bioengineered products market (a market projected to reach $4T by 2035).
Exponential impact is hosted on AngelList as a rolling fund.
