Flagship Ventures operates through two synergistic units:

The Flagship VentureLabs unit systematically originates and launches transformative companies that can shape the world’s future. Comprising a team of professional entrepreneurs with an unmatched track record of invention and company creation, Flagship VentureLabsTM is the first institutional platform for accelerated innovation and parallel entrepreneurship, where the processes of technology invention and company conception are merged and rapidly iterated to generate high potential new ventures.

The Flagship Venture Capital unit brings decades of operating and investing experience to the more than sixty companies in its portfolio. The portfolio consists primarily of seed and early-stage investments, with some later stage value investments. Healthcare investments target therapeutics and health technologies and sustainability investments target clean technology and energy. Critical elements of these investments include visionary people, transformative ideas, significant intellectual property protection, deep market understanding, and the opportunity for capital efficiency and leverage.
