Our Philosophy


Investing in Fundamental Science

Tachyon Capital backs bold scientist and entrepreneurs who move fast, think big, and are committed to building disruptive and transformative technologies by applying and pushing the boundaries of cutting-edge fundamental science.

We are long term investors and business operators focused on unlocking value through engagement and active ownership. Our goal is to build long lasting relationships with scientist and entrepreneurs to enable, amplify and maximize the value they create through their research and its commercial applications.

We don’t shy away from lack of liquidity or investment infrastructure. We believe science is an underpriced and underutilized resource, and as such, an attractive investment asset class.



Bringing Smart Capital to Science

Our mission is to leverage smart capital and scientific research for the creation of a better, more fun and enjoyable future.

Research Finance and Science Venture

Tachyon takes the following approaches to investment:


science securitization PROJECT

We are  working with scientists, investors and policy makers to develop the financial infrastructure required for science investments. Our goal is to create mechanisms to price externalities, provide transparency to avoid speculators, and enable securitization to allow for liquidity in the market.



We believe negative and positive externalities are mispriced assets. We invest in undervalued positive externalities, and in overvalued negative externalities. In both cases, we look for opportunities where the underlying science has the power to transform their value.



We leverage available public data on science to understand trends, and streamline the sourcing, selection and execution on opportunities.
