OS Fund is raising $250 million for OS Fund II
OS Fund is a venture capital fund that invests in entrepreneurs and companies that develop breakthrough discoveries in science to address our most pressing global problems. Bryan Johnson and his co-founder Jeff Klunzinger started OS Fund believing that emergent global challenges require a new philosophy of investing and problem-solving.
OS Fund is the next generation of impact investing — supporting and delivering on revolutionary innovations that solve problems on a global scale, at the operating system level. OS Fund invests in entrepreneurs using applied intelligence to commercialize breakthrough discoveries in genomics, synthetic biology, diagnostics, new materials, and data and energy, which creates market-ready solutions to the growing threats we face in public health, natural resources, and global infrastructure.
OS Fund I made 28 investments total, with 27 receiving follow on investment, four valued at over a billion dollars, and two acquired. According to PitchBook, OS Fund’s investments were among the top 10% of U.S. funds in performance. The success of OS Fund has proven that it’s possible to achieve results by breaking the rules that traditionally govern deep tech investing.
