Cleantech. Software. Semiconductors. Networking Systems and Services.

The world is currently sitting at the cusp of massive change, brought on by the convergence of multiple technological and social trends. The pervasiveness of silicon technologies, the explosion of communications bandwidth, the phenomena of the Internet, and the advent of cleantech have opened up the need for whole new product categories and services in the near future. At Draper Athena, we invest in companies with core technologies that serve this new global trend – companies innovating the components and systems for next-generation infrastructure, the software and services for new communications and social network platforms, and the clean technologies that solve the world’s energy and environmental problems.
