CEO of Momentus
Prime Movers Lab has been deeply supportive and we feel the partnership. I am very grateful for help on the small stuff and big picture strategy. It has even helped me to create my style and approach. I like our consistent conversations and that we are well synchronized on our milestones and plans. I feel I am not alone. Decker is also helping us a lot. He helped me address some topics with my business partner that further deepened our relationship. I also think he coached me to reframe and explain some of my decisions to our team better. I am finding it very helpful.
CEO of polySpectra
We chose Prime Movers Lab to lead our seed round because of their commitment to supporting deep tech founders. We resonate with their physics-focused thesis and were impressed by the depth of their technical diligence. We are excited to partner with them and have already started to benefit from their excellent founder resources, which they are continuously improving. Simply put, we picked Prime Movers Lab because they have their priorities straight.
CEO of Halo
We are incredibly excited to partner with PML because of how impressed we quickly became by the experience, work ethic and service mindset of their entire team. We're not only strong believers in PML's core thesis on the potential of physics-powered start-ups, but also in the ability of the PML team to execute and add value. Although we had a number of offers, some that even provided a higher valuation, we felt that the complete package offered by PML was a strong differentiator and we are looking forward to working together to improve the lives of billions across the world.
CEO of Noble.AI
Simply put, Prime Movers Lab is performing at the highest marks I can give. It's been useful to discuss business strategy to help keep me and my team focused on what matters most. Partners at the firm are first-rate. Ed has helped advise and add value to the company on leadership in physics-oriented project management. I interact a lot with Decker and his team-building exercises with us have received rave reviews. Decker has been able to come in and help team members resolve potential inter-personal issues early-on, limiting turnover, and helping my team perform at its best.
co-CEO of Rival Theory
For investors, we look for industry-defining, super-smart people who bring a breadth and depth of experiences beyond what others offer that will nurture a powerful partnership. Prime Movers Lab is just this sort of an organization. Our decision was made with a tremendous amount of due diligence and quite frankly, time with them. They grok us. Our time with the people who make up PML convinced us they were willing and able to support with what we needed with a burning commitment. We’re definitely advantaged and thrilled to have them on our side of the playing field.
CEO of Platypus Neuro
I can honestly report that the Prime Movers team has offered value to both myself and our company in a manner that I’ve never before experienced. In addition to offering us access to their minds and rolodex, Prime Movers proactively interacts with our company as if we are their customer, and as if their only job is to do whatever is needed to ensure that we are wildly successful. As of this writing, Dakin has had a flawless investment track record. Now that I've had the chance to work with him directly, I think I may understand how he's been able to beat the odds here.
CEO of Cabin
The Prime Movers Lab retreats have been excellent—specifically forcing CEOs out of the office to talk to other CEOs. I could engage in collaborative brainstorming with my peers. I came out with a lot of ideas because my mind was in exploratory mode. Taking the time to not think about execution was really useful. I am now implementing some key learnings from the retreat coaching portion and getting great results. Also, advice we received on financing strategy was really helpful and about how to rapidly transition the team’s mindset to support our growth.
Founder of Reification
We tell people stories about working with Prime Movers Lab because the experience is 5 sigma out there and utterly different from anyone else we have spoken to. Their service to and coaching of entrepreneurs is the ideal that every investor pretends to offer. We can't believe how lucky we are to be working with them. In every conversation we are getting the support we need - including tough feedback when needed. And, Prime Movers Lab has made introductions leading to real business opportunities! One introduction has been a game-changing force for our business.
CEO of Gordian
Working with Prime Movers Lab has been awesome. Being able to just text and ask for help with something I have not done before—particularly around fundraising—has felt really good. Having someone to fall back on to tell me the right answer is invaluable. It feels like Prime Movers Lab has my back. The connections and introductions have been extremely helpful and have provided feedback and support and lead to further great introductions. Also, the help on branding has been huge. Getting a logo and website up fast has been really useful.
