Game changing technologies coming to your ride
1597_ 9/2/14 - We're talking with David Moll, venture capitalist and founder of Infield Capital. We asked David to tell us about their work. He said, "Infield Capital. is a fund that invests in early stage technologies for the transportation industry. In particular we are interested in those things that improve the economy and emissions profile for vehicles. That stuff is between the key and the wheel." So they really like things like new advanced combustion engines and new systems like air handling your fuel injection for those engines. David says they love batteries and power electronics and electric motors and they've been looking again at fuel cells - all of those technologies are within their purview. "If we get jargony," he said, "we invest in the things that store and convert energy for mobile applications." Now half-way through their fund, with 15 investments and a couple of exits, David tells us they've seen the landscape around the companies in their portfolio change dramatically. He thinks about the relatively new phenomenon of abundant, low cost natural gas, domestic natural gas. That certainly wasn't something they saw coming in 2007.
