Jason Illian, managing director of Koch Disruptive Technologies, describes our unique approach to investing in entrepreneurs — going beyond funding and helping entrepreneurs succeed as a business.

And it’s certainly important to make sure you have enough capital to build a formidable, long-lasting company. But the best entrepreneurs aren’t just looking for the biggest checkbook. They’re looking for a partner who can help them accelerate their business beyond the check and unlock long-term value.
