About us

Chris Dewey and Mark Goldwasser worked together to set up Robotic Ventures in 2000-2001 (which they believe was the first robotic venture fund ever). Two of the material investments were iRobot and Z-KAT Inc. iRobot had an initial public offering in 2005. While involved with Z-KAT, Chris Dewey recruited Maurice Ferre. Together they built MAKO SURGICAL which went public in February 2008 and was then sold to STRYKER for $1.65 billion in 2014. Chris personally has invested alongside Maurice Ferre, Fred Moll, and David Matlin.

This was the genesis of a string of investments in robotic, minimally-invasive, non-intrusive medical device companies that included early round financing of AURIS Surgical (sold to Johnson & Johnson for $5.7 billion); SHOCKWAVE Medical (trades under the symbol SWAV); CEPHEA Valve Technology (acquired by ABBOTT LABS for $200 million); InSightec; and PROCEPT BioRobotics. Early stage investing in these types of companies can carry significant risk of total loss of principal, and not all investments made by these investors historically have been successful. The value of the five companies below is over $10 billion.
