    Our Portfolio

    Meet some of the great minds and bold ideas we have invested in.

We help your great ideas grow

We know great ideas come from unexpected places — and that no single company or person can know everything. In order to capture ideas from multiple sources, our "Innovation at the edge" program takes a portfolio approach from startups, employee challenges, early-stage companies, and incubators.

We look for entrepreneur partners in Buildings, IT, Industry and Energy markets — and for ideas that have growth potential and the ability to capture value for our customers. We invest in market innovations that are core to our business, adjacent innovations to enter new markets and disruptive ideas that will create new markets and help lead the way in the new energy future.

We provide support in forming the founding team, customer development, product development, business models and investments.
