Breakthrough innovations pave the way to the future and may help solve the most pressing issues the world is facing. However, the earliest stages of innovation are often challenging. How many great ideas to aid human progress never make it to the market, dying at an early stage due to lack of necessary financial resources?
At Solvay, we believe there are huge opportunities for collaborative innovation and sustainable growth. Solvay invests in early stage startups that develop innovative solutions in the fields of sustainable resources, energy transition, health & wellbeing and Industry 4.0. Beyond capital, we actively support these companies with our market and application know-how, scale-up and supply chain capabilities.
Operating since 2005, Solvay Ventures manages $100m of investments either in selected Venturing Funds or through direct investments.
