WHO WE ARE

Aptima Ventures was established by Aptima Inc. to identify and commercialize high-potential, early-stage technologies originating from Aptima and from leading universities and federally-funded research programs. We partner with entrepreneurs, companies, and venture investors, both global and domestic, to launch sophisticated product solutions oriented by intellectual property and strategic value.

The Human: A New Frontier for Innovation

We are bringing to market leading-edge solutions that reflect an integrated approach to human-system performance. In our increasingly complex and data-rich technology environment, it has become critical to understand and then optimize the evolving roles of the human: how we perform, think, learn, work, play, collaborate, and make decisions.

The Approach: Fusing Ideas and Markets

We promote mature technology that has been de-risked through extensive R&D at Aptima Inc., leading universities, and federally-funded research programs. Our proficiency with highly technical mission-critical environments such as defense, aerospace, and medicine, coupled with our expertise in product commercialization places us in a unique position to launch the next generation of industry-leading businesses.

The Opportunity: Unleashing the Value of Invention

We live at the intersection of scientific invention, technological development, and commercial markets, which enables us to efficiently turn today’s emerging ideas into tomorrow’s successful businesses. We combine a unique understanding of human capability with ever-evolving computational advances to deliver intelligent, custom systems and commercial products.

The Key: Deploying Human-Centered Innovation

We design solutions that facilitate a richer collaboration between humans and machines: transitioning the machines from tools into teammates. We launch new products that optimize human performance in diverse environments such as enterprises, schools, and healthcare systems.

It Takes an Interdisciplinary Village

We bring together an extensive network of experienced entrepreneurs, engineers and scientific leaders to build companies from the ground up. From establishing leadership teams to creating syndicates for later-stage financing rounds, we are more often an “institutional founder” than an “institutional funder” of companies.
