Our Story

Launched in 1996 to incubate seed stage startups, Third Wave Ventures pioneered a committed capital fund strategy by becoming the funding partner to founders, bringing in select strategic participants in later rounds, but avoiding syndications with financial institutions. In the deep tech fields of semiconductors, clean energy and IOT, our companies aim to improve lives and transform society.

Our team of physicists, technologists, and investors back exceptional entrepreneurs who have demonstrated success over multiple startups. Among our investments are Innovent Systems (acquired by Broadcom), Neven Vision (acquired by Google), Ostendo and Ingenu. Third Wave Ventures is headquartered in Beverly Hills, California, with offices in Beijing.
