How Does It Work?

We have built a company toolkit that consists of; A large network comprised of geographically diverse experts, company partners, and industry players. 

We build and invest into assets in a context where data and climate are dominant generational macroeconomic trends. Recognizing that most great companies do not fit the exponential scaling profile of venture capital, we vertically integrate business units that are efficiently served when aligned to capital in structures where partners share in company building infrastructure and backend activities, allowing them to focus on their core business.

Through this structure Echelon offers the unique opportunity of shared ownership, which aligns incentives across all business models. 

The Ecosystem Effect

Collectively we have spent more than 10 years building a strong technical and capital network that consists of a toolkit of industry leaders, partners and talent in a decentralized ecosystem not tied down by geography or stage. This network covers everything a company needs to go from 0 to 100. It also covers a multitude of what we call “Centers of Excellence” – our core technical building blocks.

Echelon is our mechanism to capitalize on the network: creating a strong, interconnected, company-building engine positioned to execute on important problems in data and climate. The core building blocks are; our network, Capital sources and strategies that will span the lifetime of companies within Echelon, Deep technical expertise focused on data science, and strong operating company credentials to build sustaining businesses, free from external dependencies.

As Echelon becomes successful, we will be creating immense value and sharing the upside with all individual contributors to the Echelon engine. The output of these combined building blocks is the unique opportunity of having ownership in generation-defining companies. 

This, we call The Ecosystem Effect
