Who We Are
Our goal is to provide early-stage startups with the capital and partnerships needed to go from idea to market in a curated, organized capacity.
The origin of EIC Rose Rock traces back to an invitation from EIC’s trusted partners—Tulsa Innovation Labs (TIL) and the George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF). Tulsa Innovation Labs designed this initiative to seize the opportunity to convene the unique energy ecosystem in Oklahoma to create a global energy technology innovation hub. EIC enthusiastically partnered with TIL and GKFF to develop a venture capital fund that builds upon Oklahoma’s deep energy expertise, entrepreneurial ethos, and collaborative community orientation.
Oklahoma has been a pioneer of energy technology and services since the early 1900s and is home to 10 Fortune 1000 energy companies. Oklahoma’s energy leaders are partnering with transformational energy tech startups to accelerate their innovation objectives. EIC Rose Rock Founding Partners Devon, ONEOK, and Williams, representing over $140B in enterprise value, are actively scaling their innovation programs to achieve substantial energy transition, emissions reductions, and operational goals.
EIC Rose Rock is a unique long-term partnership between a trusted visionary family foundation and its tech-focused development arm, multiple Fortune 500 energy leaders, and a premier venture capital fund.
EIC Rose Rock is committed to investing in companies dedicated to developing energy technology, including those that advance the energy transition, improve sustainability, and enhance operational efficiency of existing assets.
