LET US BRING YOUR INNOVATION
TO THE WORLD
We work with IP of all varieties, including products, patents, trade secrets, proprietary relationships, and know-how. We can pursue value creation from your IP via licenses, asset sales, startups, joint ventures, M&A, or internal business units.
We can also set the stage for success by engaging with you early in the commercialization process, via commercialization planning and TABA support.
Why is Rushlight Ventures
the right fit for you?
Our team has deep knowledge and expertise in the defense and aerospace industries as well as in a variety of commercial markets.
We work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and develop tailored solutions that meet their specific requirements, including the sometimes-sensitive nature of their IP.
We Help Do It
We don’t just tell you what you should do—we help do it.
You will never just get a binder or a report or a recommendation from Rushlight Ventures. We jump in the trenches with you and help get it done.
We love “hard tech,” the IP related to physical objects and tangible products.
While most of the venture and venture studio world is tilting increasingly toward virtual, we revel in the Newtonian 3D space we live in.
We never force a deal to hit our own timeline.
Because we are not tied to the time constraints of a venture fund, we can work on any timeline that is in your best interests.
We focus on de-risking market and
We expect the technical de-risking to have largely been accomplished via federally sponsored RDT&E contracts or grants.
