TDK Ventures

Embracing digital and energy transformation for a sustainable world

We invest globally in early stage hard-tech entrepreneurs to help accelerate 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 actively searching for solutions for difficult problems. We have a proven track-record of solving problems, since 1935.


Much more than capital

TDK Venturesʼ 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.


Our Mission

We believe in a sustainable world where digital and energy transformation will improve billions of lives. Our mission is to help accelerate learning and contributions to society, investing in start-ups with similar idealism.


We follow the “pay-it-forward” approach of working within the venturing ecosystem, building lasting partnerships in a global and extensive early-stage technology and innovation network.


Our Philosophy

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.
