Tupper Lake Partners Managing Partner Jason Martinez will be interviewed in Spencer Clements, CEO of William Cole Co. in Bryan, Texas. Tupper Lake Partners is a Venture Capital and Investment Management firm formed in 2020 comprised of former energy & technology CEOs that bring their experience (and personal capital) to fund & accelerate early stage technology companies focused on traditional and new energy, and broader ESG/decarbonization economy. Our veteran executives join our portfolio companies, (typically as chairman/board), and then leverage their networks to open doors w/ new customers and business partners. TLP funded two software companies this year, Datagration and Orennia, and both of off to a very strong starts. We believe our unique team approach can help accelerate early-stage companies, either standalone or within existing corporate venture portfolios.
