It is our mission to find, fund, and scale a new generation of technology companies that are bringing greener, more sustainable, more efficient manufacturing in virtually every industry. They have developed breakthrough innovations transforming manufacturing into a high growth, highly profitable business and laying the foundation for a revival of manufacturing in America.
Over the next 10 years, COTE will invest billions of dollars in this new generation of technology companies in a better way — a new paradigm — to inspire the entrepreneurs and the innovations that can rebuild industries and ensure that our nation is not left behind.
That Is Green
Transforms manufacturing into a high growth, highly profitable business through greater efficiency
Lowers carbon emissions, use of natural resources, and reduces / eliminates toxic chemicals
Reuses waste in making the same products with end-to-end traceability to prove it
Makes Economic Sense
The opportunity of a lifetime
Green is no longer a nice to have, its a must have, that transforms manufacturing into a high growth, highly profitable business through greater efficiency in resource use.
This transformation is happening in virtually every industry driven by fast growing demand for green manufacturing and products, under pressure from governments and the public.
The next generation of unicorns — companies valued at a billion dollars or more — will be led by technology companies transforming how products are made and used in an industry.
Finding, Funding, and Scaling
We provide capital for scaling the manufacturing capacity and operations of companies with breakthrough IP assets, including new product designs, know-how, and manufacturing equipment, as they enter commercial markets and beyond to meet fast growing customer demand.
We receive a percentage of a company's revenues to provide our investors with a annual cash yield, paid quarterly, plus a percentage of a future company exit (IPO, sale) to buyout our revenue share, leaving equity ownership and control in the hands of the entrepreneurs building a business.
