About MDB

Submit Your Big Idea

Since 1997, MDB has been enabling big ideas from inventors, entrepreneurs, and universities to get to market through a unique public venture capital model

We believe our model is fundamentally different from traditional, fund-based venture capital, because it maximizes the value of promising ideas early, while also providing for more liquidity and transparency, and better alignment of stakeholder interests.

Our process involves evaluating all ideas against a set of criteria that we believe maximize the probability for an early-stage technology to create and sustain a meaningful valuation in the public markets. The first step in this process involves gauging the uniqueness of an invention by comparing patent claims to others in their space. To that end, the questionnaire below allows us to assess your big idea quickly and efficiently.
