Strong Atomics invests in nuclear fusion startups to create an additional source of clean, cheap, abundant and safe energy.
We invest in a portfolio of fusion projects that have been selected based on their potential to create net-positive energy and to lead to plausible reactors.
Our theses are:
- New approaches to fusion can deliver energy on the grid soon enough to be relevant to climate change, and cheaply enough to matter.
- The majority of investments in fusion go toward projects that are not intended to deliver energy on the grid in a reasonable timeframe
- There is a lot of scientific uncertainty about which approach to fusion will work first or best, so we invest in a portfolio of appealing approaches
- While it is important to work on renewables, storage, energy efficiency and grid improvements, it's hard to model a world where these are enough to solve our problems. The world needs some form of nuclear power
