All people working in technology share the desire
to change the world and the future.
Their commitment to turn their goals into reality
drives them to sacrifice sleep and push forward.
Yet, a large majority of people are forced to give up
without ever achieving their dreams.
Though technology holds unlimited potential,
technology alone cannot make the world turn.
Even the most wonderous technology cannot contribute to the future of humanity without funds, wisdom, experience, and public understanding.
We identify the technologies that can contribute
to global affluence 100 years from now..

Ecosystem Providing Comprehensive Support for the Social Implementation of Research Results in the Field of Real Tech
When investing, we place greater emphasis on the seed and early stages, when it is the most difficult to obtain funding in real tech. This is based on our belief that the largest share of risk money should be allocated to the transition from the development of a technology to the application of the technology in the form of a product or a service. We believe that real tech funds like us are necessary, specifically because an understanding of both the relevant technologies and innovativeness as a business is required in order to evaluate a company and its technologies. We also provide support starting from the establishment of a company, working with engineers who have not yet established a company or with individuals with ideas for a new business.
Partners Working Together for the Social Implementation of Real Tech
Companies that invest in Real Tech Fund are experts in their respective fields and understand the significance of fostering Realtech startups. Each company leverages its strengths to provide personnel, goods, and funds in support of Realtech startups.
