What type of investments do you make?

We primarily invest in young and emerging companies that build scalable software solutions for enterprises. Our R&D Lab partners with early stage and later stage companies to match, mentor, scale and integrate their technologies with Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies, government organizations, SMB organizations and institutional investors.


How many investments do you make every year?

Due to ETR&D's hands on approach we will only be making a handful of investments each year to better nurture every company that joins our Lab.


Are you an accelerator/incubator?

Enterprise Technology Research & Development (ETR&D) is not an accelerator/incubator and has no particular duration or an application process. We are a boutique R&D Lab powered by ETR: Enterprise Technology Research.


What is ETR and how are you different?

Our R&D Lab is born from ETR: Enterprise Technology Research –a next generation data-driven research firm.  For more than 4 years ETR has routinely surveyed their thousands of high-level enterprise IT end users in a standardized format regarding their organizations' spending intentions on 250+ technology vendors across 24 sectors of technology.  This data warehouse and its associated models not only identify which spaces and vendors are gaining and losing mindshare and dollars, but also who these technologies and vendors are gaining with and losing from.  

This unique, robust historical respondent data regarding their vendors acts as an enterprise's technology vendor DNA - which in turn allows ETR&D to identify what is needed and from whom, to produce the best possible partnerships between startups and high-level enterprise IT end users.  

ETR's high-level enterprise IT end user members represent a significant amount of the globe's annual IT spend. Net net, ETR&D harnesses data and these relationships to introduce, match, mentor and scale appropriate, young & disruptive technologies to the most ideal enterprises to ensure the highest probability of success.

How often Would we get to see Norman?

More than you'd like :)


Do you provide space?

Yes. Businesses in which we partner and invest have the option to use our R&D Lab as an office. We are in the heart of the tech community in New York City and our space is absolutely free for an unlimited amount of time, the only restriction being our physical capacity.
