Embracing digital and energy transformation for a sustainable world
We invest globally in early stage hard-tech entrepreneurs accelerating their dreams
Fundamental Materials Science
We love materials science: dielectrics, magnetics, MEMS, neuro-electricals, organic materials, piezoelectrics, semiconductors, and many other types of materials.
TDK Ventures is looking for solutions to the hardest problems where we have a proven track-record of solving since 1935.
Much more than capital
TDK Ventures goal is to help every start-up we invest to achieve their full potential for positive world impact. Equipped with a start-up liaison function, we are focused on bringing the full “TDK goodness” to our start-ups.
This can include early product validation, pilots, customer/channel/ecosystem access, industry connections, market knowledge, operating expertise (e.g. materials, manufacturing, fabless, supply chain) and go-to-market/branding mentorship.
We believe in a sustainable world where digital and energy transformation will improve billions of lives for the better. Our mission is to help accelerate learnings and contributions to society, investing in start-ups with similar idealism.
We follow the “pay-it-forward” approach of working within the venturing ecosystem and building lasting partnerships in a global and extensive early-stage technology and innovation network.
We absolutely want to “move the needle”, by delivering meaningful financial results with our co-investors and bringing new powerful transformation business opportunities to TDK. Ensuing a sense of urgency with both flexibility and speed in our investment decision making.
We aim to find meaningful opportunities in early stage technology, especially in Health & Wellness, next Generation Transportation, Robotics & Industrial, Mixed Reality, and the wider IoT market segments.
