The new fund will continue to stay true to UTEC's core philosophy of “pioneering the frontiers to solve global issues of humankind, by bringing capital, talent and knowledge, around science and technology.”
We sincerely express our gratitude to all of our supporters who have helped us so far in establishing "UTEC 4 Limited Partnership". We also hope that you continue to support us in our future endeavors.
