US 708 is the fastest star in the galaxy. We focus on early stage deep tech startups. Our Syndicate is our agile investment and acceleration partnership.
We believe in hard work, industry-shifting startups, sound strategy, solid teamwork, and bias towards execution. We believe the pay-it-forward philosophy enables a strong startup ecosystem in aerospace and other Deep Tech sectors with high barriers to entry where our backgrounds help position companies to achieve success.
We provide access to a network of relevant advisors and work hard to connect companies with the resources to succeed. If there is a fit, we invest and syndicate a company's pre-seed round.
What Is Deep Tech?
The term deep tech was coined by Swati Chaturvedi, co-founder and CEO of investment firm Propel(x). The word doesn't refer to innovation itself, but to a category of startup companies that develop new products based “on scientific discovery or meaningful engineering innovation."
The startups we work with span multiple Deep Tech sectors, but can have the most impact on those companies within Aerospace (Air and Space), Maritime, CleanTech/Clean Energy, Robotics, and those [software/data/artificial intelligence]technologies that touch these domains.
