Our Vision

“After four decades supporting entrepreneurs through venture capital, business planning and executive mentorship, I believe it is time for a new type of partnership that engages the entrepreneurs, corporations and financial institution.”

Our Goals

IBET will help keep the global GHG emissions consistent with zero net carbon 2050 targets and over-participate in the multi-trillion dollar emerging low emission market by creating investable breakthrough energy and emission technology companies that will deploy their products in half the average time of conventional commercialization pathways.

Why BREAKTHROUGH Tech?

IBET’s breakthrough technologies and ventures can reduce annual global GHG emissions by at least 1%, can achieve market penetration within 7 years of identification and provide customers with cost parity or better with fossil based incumbents using current CO2e incentives.

World governments, industries, and end consumers need breakthrough energy and emission products that can help keep climate change progression consistent with the Paris targets (or a maximum of ~1000 Gt of cumulative new CO2e).

The STAG Process

Unlike other scientific discovery to product processes, IBET’s STAG process leverages scientific innovation with application and market innovation in an early stage crucible creating venturable technology with a low likelihood of experiencing expensive pivoting processes. The STAG process starts with the development of a customer driven CRD (customer/market requirements document). Once the CRD is developed and the technology specifications established, the technology program is created (through discovery or repurposing) and a core team environment established. IBET’s disciplined core-team product development approach uniquely incorporates the scientific investigator with other domain experts and employs only highly experienced technology entrepreneurs as project managers to end with commercial products and ventures.
