Matter Venture Partners is building the HardTech fund of the future.

Society’s biggest innovations are built on HardTech - hardcore science and engineering that combines hardware and software. Internet, cloud computing, mobile - these revolutions were enabled and accelerated by HardTech innovation in semiconductors, batteries, displays and sensors, and more. The decades to come will see HardTech driving artificial intelligence, robotics, electrification (of everything), and so much more. HardTech is revolutionizing the very fabric of our environments, economies, and societies.


But coming up with the next big idea isn’t enough. A successful startup is about bringing an innovation to scale, not just a one-time breakthrough. Pure software can be copied infinitely at zero cost. But building a successful HardTech startup requires solving hardcore science and engineering problems, and then simultaneously solving for supply chain, product-market fit, and a sustainable financial model. HardTech startups can be massively valuable, but they also can be much harder and take longer. 


Until now. Matter is accelerating HardTech to accelerate all tech.


At Matter, we’re committed to taking the “hard” out of HardTech. Beyond capital and advice, we bring execution heft and strategic leverage. Through years of experience as hands-on investors, founders, and operational executives, we know how to substantially accelerate the process of bringing HardTech innovation to scale. We get customers to our startups early; to shortcut product-market fit. We build business models to scale sustainably from day one. And we’ve built a collection of strategic LPs - the same companies that enabled the fabless model for semiconductors, the rise of cloud computing, and more -  to be a diversified manufacturing and technology scale-up supply chain for our startups.  


We’ve already been doing this for nearly two decades in our work as founders and as VCs at Kleiner Perkins, where we helped companies create the world’s most efficient fuel cells, the most power-efficient chips, and the most capable drones. 


Now, as Matter, we’re solely focused on building the next generation of HardTech startups developing the technologies that matter most, in the world we actually live in.
