A few years ago, we formed Syska (Hennessy) Innovations in an effort to invest in early-stage companies and pilot their software and products. Our goals for doing this are three-fold: leverage our core expertise, provide added value, and demonstrate industry leadership.
Leverage Core Expertise
Leverage Syska Hennessy’s core expertise in consulting engineering to identify early-stage investable opportunities that might not be recognized by traditional venture-capital funds.
Add value to our investments by using non-cash resources unique to Syska Hennessy, like projects, domain expertise, connections to collaborators, and industry exposure.
Demonstrate Industry Leadership
Serve as a model for the industry to follow by supporting a culture of innovation and technology within and beyond Syska Hennessy.
To guide our investment choices, we established the following innovation focus “buckets”:
Industrialization of Design
Products and Methods
Does your start-up fit in one of these buckets? If so, fill out the questionnaire below.
