The world’s largest USD 500 million digitally securitized DeepTech fund is on a mission to revolutionize DeepTech investments and empower frontier technology advances to improve our world
Tokyo, 19th December 2022: Nemesis Technologies, a pioneering venture capital fund that invests in deep technology, announces that it is on course to become the world’s largest digitally securitized fund, with significant nine-figure backing from Institutional Investors & Family Offices across Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the US.
Set up throughout 2022, Nemesis Technologies invests in radically innovative companies that are powered by the revolutions in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Quantum Computing, Robotics, Advanced Materials, and Bio-Technology, specifically across 3 sectors: Clean Energy – HealthTech – Network Infrastructure & Connectivity.
This unique fund creates a direct link between breakthrough DeepTech entrepreneurs looking to push technological barriers to solve the world’s most pressing challenges and much-needed capital-intensive investments. These startups, together with the investment and expertise from Nemesis, will scale to become the groundbreaking world-class, impactful, meaningful, and sustainable companies of tomorrow.
Nemesis has been founded by a Japan-based former Carlyle Group Private Equity Investment professional, Pierre Mauries. Pierre previously managed various investment vehicles, cross-border merger and acquisition transactions, and post-merger integration, in excess of USD 2 billion+. He is also recognized as a bold digital pioneer across alternative finance.
“This is just the most critical time to be championing DeepTech. It really is an age of life and planet-changing advances – but only if the greatest brains working on sustainable frontier technology solutions for the future have the funding to develop and prove the worth of their innovations” stressed Pierre Mauries, Founder, General Partner and Chief Investment Officer, Nemesis Technologies.
The DeepTech sector has recently seen impressive growth, with global investment in this space quadrupling in recent years, rising from $15 billion in 2016 to $60 billion in 2020. Today, the median DeepTech unicorn takes $115 million of capital and 5.2 years to get there, and with 120 recent DeepTech unicorns with a combined value of $463 billion, the sector is primed for further growth and disruption.
Mauries continued, “We aim to add much more liquidity by connecting new investors with hundreds of million-dollar opportunities within this growing sector. The potential for DeepTech to have a profound impact on our World is huge and expanding exponentially.”
The fund has offices in all major trading centers, with global and local operations driven from its Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, and New York City offices. Nemesis has also established an impressive suite of non-executive Board members and advisors who, together, bring world-class expertise in key DeepTech technologies, such as biopharma, clean energy, carbon pricing, quantum computing, artificial intelligence and deep learning, digital ledger technologies, and cybersecurity.
Katherine Verrier-Frechette has recently been appointed as Managing Partner and Global Head of DeepTech Solutions at Nemesis. A Venture Capital leader in DeepTech, she is a former management consultant with McKinsey & Company and a former senior Canadian diplomat. Katherine brings a shared philosophy to Nemesis Technologies – to improve the lives of many.
“Solving the world’s most pressing challenges and leveraging DeepTech to do so is really what Nemesis is all about. With the right mix of enthusiasm, brain power, and investment in DeepTech solutions, we can make the critical corrective shifts to improve the lives of many and the state of our planet. Investors are following Nemesis in this important mission confirming that the age of DeepTech is now!” Verrier-Frechette commented.
