DFJ Mercury is a seed and start-up venture capital firm. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, DFJ Mercury invests in compelling and novel start-up opportunities in information technology, advanced materials and biosciences.
DFJ Mercury seeks to partner with extraordinary entrepreneurs to build globally competitive businesses, focusing on technology innovation in the Midcontinent. DFJ Mercury’s sole focus is seed and start-up investing. We initially invest between $100,000 to $1.5 million into an opportunity and will build syndicates for investments needing larger amounts of capital. We typically lead the first round of investment, and expect to invest between $2 million and $5 million over the life of an investment.
Within the clean technology sector we have made investments in ActaCell (battery technology), Glycos Biotechnologies, Inc. (green chemistry), and Illumitex (LEDs).
