At Cortado Ventures we invest in companies who dream big and have what it takes to make it happen, disrupting sectors with innovative technology where we are aligned as operators. Our recent investment in Pipedream embodies that conviction. Founders Garrett McCurrach and Drew Bellcock see a future where teleportation is within reach and the ownership of things model is turned on its head. Their solution gets us one step closer.
Oklahoma City based Pipedream is the future of hyperlogistics, the next generation of on-demand delivery. They were recently featured in Techstars, one of the top tech accelerators in the world. Pipedream plans to create a system of underground tunnels that will enable high speed delivery robots to deliver and store goods. Imagine a future where anything we want can be delivered within 5 minutes. Now add the ability to return items at the same speed, and you’ve just redefined ownership. Other investors include executives of Drizly, Atmos, Dropbox, and Doordash. Cortado is well aligned as our leadership includes a ditch digger (former Ditch Witch CEO David Woods) and a pipeliner (former EagleClaw CCO Blake Bixler). Pipedream is piloting their tech in Los Angeles.
