Venture Development is the method by which an important part of the future will be built. It's as much a way of thinking as it is a business model.
Venture Development removes the isolating barriers of "investor," "manager," and "worker" but instead brings everyone together - shoulder to shoulder, in tackling the business mission.
Capital is seen as a tool just as other tools can be valuable - like time and talent. At Proton, we are workers, managers, and investors - we are teammates, and we leverage tools (like capital and talent), through a venture development framework, to empower entrepreneurs.
in a definite positive future. We believe that Inspirational people drive change. And we look for companies dancing at the intersection of art and technology.

We value creativity over data and back integrity over track-record. It's not aligned to everyone's vision, and that's ok - it's our vision.
