Our Vision

We aim to be the preferred partner in accelerating the value of entrepreneurs’ disruptive companies and the transformation of Koch Industries. 

The Cornerstones of
Our Philosophy

Creative Destruction

KDT embraces disruption by promoting creative destruction — the continuous process of iterating, improving and destroying current business models and platforms, EVEN OUR OWN. We partner with emerging high-growth companies that are committed to doing the same.

OUR APPROACH

Stage
Agnostic

We have the flexibility and long-term thinking to invest anywhere in the life cycle of a company, from seed to late-stage growth.

Industry
Agnostic

We have no box.  We can invest across various industries anywhere in the world. Some of our investments will be ancillary to Koch’s core businesses and some will be in completely new industries.

Situationally
Focused

We review each opportunity on individual merit and timing, not concerning ourselves with popular themes or concentration limits.
