OUR MISSION

Our mission is Finding, Funding, and Scaling a new generation of technology companies with breakthrough innovations that can deliver greener, more sustainable, more efficient and effective manufacturing and use of products in an industry, that will benefit the world when broadly adopted and lay a foundation for bringing manufacturing and IP back to 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 will build a better world for humanity and ensure our nation is not left behind.

Investing in the future of America in this way is driven by a core belief and faith — demonstrated time and time again throughout the course of our nation’s history — that the more value we create in the world for others through broad adoption of breakthrough innovations, the more value we create for our nation, our people, and our investors.  

OUR FOCUS

Breakthrough IP
That Is Green

TRANSFORMING

Transforms manufacturing into a high growth, highly profitable business through greater efficiency and effectiveness

SUSTAINABLE

Reduces carbon footprint/greenhouse gas emissions, use of natural resources, and toxic chemicals and their discharge

CIRCULAR

Rejuvenates/recycles post-consumer and post-industrial waste for use in making the same products vs. downgraded uses

Makes Economic Sense

Why Green?

The opportunity of a lifetime

The
New Gold

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.

In Every Industry

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.

DRIVING 
THE FUTURE 

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.

OUR MODEL

Finding, Funding, and Scaling
Breakthrough Innovations

IP capital

We provide capital for scaling a breakthrough technology company’s manufacturing and operations to meet customer demand as they enter markets and beyond, backed by their “brick and mortar” IP assets, including new product designs, know-how, and proprietary manufacturing equipment and contracts.

Asset Backed.

IP Royalty

We receive a percentage of a company's revenues ("IP royalty" or "revenue share") to provide our investors with an annual cash yield, paid quarterly, plus a percentage of a future company exit (IPO, sale) to buyout the royalty, leaving equity ownership and control  in the hands of the entrepreneurs building it.

Dividend Paying.

IP SERVICES

We provide IP management, technology, and operations support to protect, optimize, and scale the use of a company's IP assets, and we bring a shared technology platform for integrating smart manufacturing into the company's operations to optimize performance, profitability, and quality.
