Stormbreaker

Early stage venture investing in innovation for the connected ecosystem - technologies that connect people, places and things.

our focus

Wireless, mobility, and connectivity technologies that maximize existing infrastructure and advance a safer, more efficient, and more connected world.

The Connected
Ecosystem

Mobility &
Wireless Technologies

Devices, services and infrastructure that enable users to access, share, and manage information without being tethered to a specific location, fostering greater connectivity and flexibility in their environments.

Networking

Integrated systems and protocols that enable the secure and efficient exchange of data across interconnected devices, facilitating both localized and wide-area communication services, including private networks and SIM technology.

IoT Devices

Interconnected objects (consumer and industrial) and sensors that communicate over the internet, enabling the collection, exchange, and analysis of data to enhance automation and efficiency in various aspects of daily life and industry.

Telematics & Transportation

Technology used to remotely monitor and manage vehicles and equipment, gathering and transmitting data on usage, location, and diagnostics to optimize performance, safety, and efficiency.

Cloud & Edge Computing

Synergistic technologies where cloud computing provides centralized data processing and storage, while edge computing brings computation and data storage closer to the location of use, reducing latency and bandwidth use in distributed networks.

Cybersecurity

Technology that protects networks and devices from unauthorized access, attacks, and theft of data, ensuring the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of transmitted information.

AI & ML

Applications that improve the efficiency, accuracy, compatibility and security of products and services within the connected ecosystem. We believe that AI will be pervasive in our sector.

Our Perspective

The world is becoming increasingly connected, but we are still only in the beginning phases of the connectivity revolution. In the next 10 years, our interactions with each other and the world around us will change fundamentally.

But the incumbents responsible for the infrastructure that support this future are facing serious headwinds. They’ve not accrued value as fast as their big-tech counterparts; their massive investment in 5G has yet to pay off. They are approaching a crossroads: innovate or die. And yet, they themselves are slow to innovate.

The urgency of the situation is not merely an issue of incumbent stock prices. Lack of investment and stagnation will ripple outward and affect the broader innovation ecosystem, ultimately posing a threat to macro growth and even national security.

This state of affairs presents a massive opportunity for companies in the connected ecosystem: The sector starved for innovation and faces a market hungry to quickly adopt new technology. We believe these companies have clear exit pathways with shorter time horizons than those typically observed in venture.

It is here that Stormbreaker, as former operators and inside networkers, has a significant advantage.

The smartphone revolution is still in the early phases.

How We're Different

Sector Advantage

As experts and former operators in technologies for the connected ecosystem, we have the knowledge and networks to evaluate, assist, and connect companies in our space, resulting in proprietary deal flow and a significant competitive advantage as a firm.

Experienced Operators

With over 150 years of wide-ranging experience as operators, we build supportive relationships based on conviction and mutual respect. Our founders benefit from the fact that there’s virtually nothing we haven’t seen.

Founder Success Platform

We believe that we are the only early-stage venture firm with a proprietary Founder Success™ Platform, supporting our portfolio companies with resources and processes to help them succeed.
