With each "next great thing" it takes foresight and experience to identify, select and execute critical factors that make up successful investing. Our expertise isn't found in "VC Investing For Dummies", nor available on the internet in various chat rooms or social sites.
It takes decades of experience with glowing successes and some skinned knees. Only then can you apply the skills necessary to generate the returns sophisticated investors expect.
Our investment thesis posits a transformation in commercial duty cycles, public transit, last mile delivery, route optimization and long haul transport led by ADAS applications, alternative fuel vehicles, infrastructure support, telematics, logistics and other smart grid infrastructure solutions.
This ecosystem is about to embark on fundamental changes over the next 5-20 years that outpace the last 50 years and will revolutionize how we travel, transport goods and live our daily lives.
This change is a fundamental departure from past incremental advancements in commercial vehicle development led by global auto OEM’s, but instead is led by technology solutions driven by global government regulation, grass roots development, the entrepreneurial spirit and end customer demand.
Van Wagoner Ventures is uniquely positioned to be the leading financier in late stage venture/expansion capital of the "New Economy" mobility connected grid, disrupting the $1 trillion global commercial vehicle transportation vertical supporting a cleaner more efficient sustainable grid.
We identify, select, invest and mentor leading technology solutions in ADAS applications, alternative fuel vehicles, infrastructure support, and smart grid connected solutions.
