Engaged Innovation

Dow Venture Capital invests in start-up companies in which Dow investment and strategic engagement together can create more value for all stakeholders. We invest in promising businesses and technologies that help address many of the world's most challenging problems such as the need for clean water, renewable energy generation and conservation, and increasing agricultural productivity.

Dow's global reach, illustrated by a diversified industry-leading portfolio of technology-based products serving customers in approximately 160 countries, drives us to align our innovations to four megatrends: Agricultural; Consumer & Lifestyle; Energy; and Infrastructure & Transportation.

We take an active role in our investments and aim to lead deals or invest alongside strong lead investors in solid teams with defensible, compelling technologies and credible business models across all stages of development – from seed to late stage.
