Investment Capital for Exotic Energy Technologies

"We look for opportunities to improve the chances of finding "new physics". We sometimes talk about looking for "the next nuclear". Imagine, in the year 1900, someone talking about a nuclear power plant.
"We haven't reached the "end of physics", so it's practically a given that there are big new things around the corner, whether it's in 5 years or 50. Hub Lab simply wants to speed up the search. And we're comfortable looking outside currently accepted thinking in science and engineering."
"Hub Lab's express purpose is to find and support very early stage - revolutionary - energy science and technology that has the potential to make a huge game-changing difference. It is motivated by a strong belief that the planet is headed for serious trouble, and that we need to look for dramatic and wholesale changes in ways to meet rapidly growing worldwide demand for energy and resources."
"We're open to cold fusion, 'over-unity' devices, vacuum or zero-point energy."
"We're one group you can talk to about your perpetual motion story."
"At the same time, there's a sizable fringe population of folks with grandiose ideas, visions and paranoid delusions, and we try to avoid them by keeping a low profile (no web presence, for example)." Ed Beardsworth.

Financing

"Hub Lab's backers have extensive holdings in energy and cleantech through standard investment vehicles. Hub Lab is a special set-aside, not focused on financial return, but on trying to make a difference. We look for situations where some initial funding has the potential to advance work on a new idea to a point where a better decision can be made about further support. The only strings attached to our initial grants are there to give us a fair shot at participating in those later stages if we want to.

We're discreet about identifying Hub Lab's backers until we start the conversation with someone we'd consider funding. It's a high net worth /family office in Asia. Our approach is to start with a small R&D grant. This gives us a chance to get to know our grantee, and for them to make some technical progress."
