hines AND MACH49
Hines, one of the largest privately held real estate investors and managers in the world, is actively evaluating and implementing new economy businesses, products, and services that enhance their portfolio, elevate the experience of tenant customers, and further empower employees. Their new venture Halo, which was incubated with Mach49 and launched within months, disrupts the commercial real estate industry with an aim to digitize the market.
"Mach49 has helped us turn ideas into real ventures. The great mentors and resources dedicated to our venture team, combined with a streamlined process, is a recipe for success. Entrepreneurship is a business where people matter — Mach49 is top of the art."
Schneider Electric AND MACH49
Schneider Electric is a multinational energy management company that has been incubating new companies with Mach49 since 2018. While new ventures incubated outside of Mach49 typically have a 90% failure rate, Schneider Electric’s success rate is 100%. Mach49 has helped incubate each venture, including eIQ Mobility (EV fleet as a service); Clipsal Solar (a top Australian residential solar energy provider combining solar and data); and Dash Energy (an online tool to optimize energy spend).
Mach49 also partners with Schneider Electric on the expansion of their CVC arm, SE Ventures. SE Ventures launched with a $600 million fund, investing in energy transition, smart structures, and industry 4.0.
"The mistakes that most corporate VCs make is to try to learn the job without any guidance. Mach49 helped us understand which details really matter versus which ones don’t. We ended up with a corporate VC design that can actually be trusted and relied upon by the full VC ecosystem."
TDK AND MACH49
TDK Ventures collaborated closely with Mach49 to design and launch a $50 million corporate venture fund in nine months. Just 18 months after the initial investment, TDK Ventures had three exits. In 2021, Mach49 assisted with the launch of a second, $150 million fund to further TDK Ventures' fast start in materials science investing. We continue to partner, accelerating their investments in early-stage clean technology and advanced materials companies like Starship, Groq, and Fabric8.
"Mach49's approach to customer pain, incubations, and building new businesses from within is utterly unique. I've never seen anything like it before."
RWE AND MACH49
In 2017, Mach49 and RWE incubated Pear.ai, a smart energy management software solution. Within 36 months of incubation, Pear.ai was acquired by the nation's leading competitive energy supplier, Constellation (parent company: Exelon Generation). Constellation leverages Pear.ai's energy intelligence platform to provide utility expense management and centralization of utility data and analytics.
"Mach49 has been a godsend. They bring a lot of knowledge about the art and science of corporate venture building and investing. They understand how to take advantage of the advancements being made in technology and how to help a large corporation make decisions quickly, which credentializes us in front of our board and investment committee."
GOODYEAR AND MACH49
The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company is a 123-year-old company that continues to evolve its business, leveraging new advancements in technology and adapting to the changing behaviors and expectations of its customers. As part of its commitment to drive meaningful growth for the company, Goodyear launched its corporate venture capital arm, Goodyear Ventures, to invest in the future of mobility.
"Going from a place where only a handful of folks had even the roughest concept of what we were going to build, to seeing Halliburton Labs out there thriving and playing a role in supporting the startup community is really exciting. Mach49 has been a fantastic engagement and really helped us get off the mat and turn our vision into a reality."
HALLIBURTON LABS AND MACH49
As part of their commitment to sustainability, Halliburton Labs selects startups to participate in their collaborative program to foster cleaner, more affordable energy. Since 2020, Mach49 has supported the launch and growth of the program, which gives early-stage clean energy companies access to Halliburton's lab facilities, technical expertise, and business network to help advance their products, secure funding, and prepare to commercialize and scale their technology.
