Drawing on his wealth of experience in investing and developing small businesses, K.P. founded The Combine in 2015. It is focused on the commercialization and launch of seed stage companies with highly protected, deep IP. The southeast has a significant base of disruptive IP-generating institutions without access to reliable commercial focused capital. By providing a relentless, hands-on focus on development, The Combine will establish a highly proprietary and convertible investment pipeline. Companies admitted to the incubator will receive an investment of up to $1 million with a mission of developing a commercial product prototype and a first market in 12 months. The team contains experienced investors, entrepreneurs, and operators who all have a track record with technology development. Additionally, The Combine provides consulting services to corporations, academic institutions and investors.
