New Venture Partners

A venture capital firm, collaborating with major corporations and R&D
institutions on technology innovation, to build new companies.

About Us

With 20 years of experience, our team has founded and funded more than 60 ventures sourced from some of the world's great technology companies. We began as the venture capital arm of Lucent's renowned Bell Labs in the mid-90's and became an independent venture firm in 2001.


What We Do

We invest in new ventures with proprietary technology. We take an active role in identifying candidate technologies, building great management teams and developing partnerships with major corporations.

LEARN MORE

The Rationale

Corporations that invest heavily in R&D often lack channels to market for the opportunities they create. Strategic and financial rewards from commercializing innovations through venturing are often missed. Expertise and capital are needed.

LEARN MORE

Corporate Partnership

New Venture Partners establishes close, long-term relationships with global technology corporations and other institutions to commercialize their technologies. We seek to leverage the corporate ecosystem to generate financial returns for the corporation and commercial advantage for the new venture.

Our Team

Our founding team has been together for nearly 20 years of venture capital investing in concert with major global corporations.
We are supported by a strategic advisory board of executives, academics, and statesmen.

Novinda

Novinda

Novinda has developed a proprietary technology that effectively removes mercury from post combustion gases of coal fired power plants. Proposed 2011 federal regulation, in addition to existing state regulations, requires the removal of a large portion of mercury, which is toxic to humans. Removal is accomplished with the injection into the furnace flue ducts of a solid sorbent material based on naturally occurring clays. Unlike the principal alternative, activated carbon, Novinda’s sorbent allows resale of fly ash, a solid combustion byproduct, as a component of concrete. This is both environmentally safer and an economic advantage for the power utility. The company is introducing its product to the utility market this year. Novinda is based in Denver, CO.

NVMdurance

NVMdurance-620x350

NVMdurance delivers via software, a set of NAND Flash optimization techniques developed over the past 13 years by technical co-founders Joe Sullivan and Conor Ryan. These have the effect of greatly extending the endurance (lifespan) of Solid State Disks (SSDs), and thus overcoming a major issue (limited endurance) that is delaying the storage industry’s transition from spinning magnetic (hard) disks to SSDs, particularly for server/enterprise storage.

We know from our engagement with major SSD manufacturers and Flash foundries that the results routinely achieving are significantly ahead of any in-house or competitive approaches to endurance improvement. At Flash Memory Summit 2013, NVMdurance won Most Innovative Technology after demonstrating endurance improvements greater than tenfold. NVMdurance achieves higher levels of improvement with the newer smaller geometry devices, many of which have major endurance challenges.

“Ironically, two of the more popular innovators at the event were in a small booth at the back of the show floor. Conor Ryan and Joe Sullivan of the two-month-old startup NVMdurance won a best of show award for their 10-fold increase in flash endurance — an Achilles’ heel of the otherwise hot memory chips. ” -Rick Merritt, EETimes.com, August 2013

BARCELONA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mobile World Congress– The Connected Car market continues to rapidly expand as consumers expect and demand connectivity on the road. As in-car connectivity extends to applications and services, a new customer support model will be needed to ensure drivers are presented with a superior Connected Car experience.

“Automobile manufacturers are viewing in-car connectivity as an opportunity to distinguish themselves in a highly competitive market by offering a range of innovative applications and services,” said Daniel Deeney, CEO of AetherPal. “With these new services will come increased customer care and support demands, many of which will require the mobile operator or automobile manufacturer to provide in-vehicle remote support. Given our heritage and success in providing operators with remote support solutions that allow for the delivery of superior customer care, we are well positioned to do the same in the Connected Car market.”
