Alex Andrianopoulos, Chief Research and Development Officer | Kairos Ventures
We invest early, often during the formative stages of a company, and work closely with the world’s leading scientists to commercialize their technologies. Depending on the stage of development and the capital requirements of each venture, we make investments between $150,000 and $20 Million. While we are hands-on investors, we also recognize that it is the entrepreneurs’ sweat, hard work and perseverance that will drive the growth of their companies. Hence, we strive to ensure that the founding team, who make the early sacrifices in pursuit of their venture, retain the majority of the ownership in their companies. In addition to providing early-stage capital, we leverage our expertise and extensive network of professionals specializing in all disciplines required to build a successful company.
Part of the webinar series “From Discovery to Commercialization: Valuable guidance to enhance the success of your startup” that is being presented by the USC Stevens Center for Innovation and the USC Chapter of the National Academy of Inventors.

The series will feature guest speakers from a variety of fields, including lawyers, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, startup founders, and more.
