Golden pine trees are exceedingly rare but exist throughout the world. As the name suggests, the needles of these beautiful “evergreens” are actually golden yellow, made so by a mutation which causes the tree to lose much of its chlorophyll. The existence of golden pines is a bit of a mystery. Although a golden branch may sometimes appear on an otherwise normal evergreen, it is extremely difficult for an entire tree to experience this mutation and survive. Therefore, golden pines require a near perfect environment and climate to grow and thrive.
Biotechnology companies, as well, require a near perfect business environment in order to thrive commercially. Golden Pine Ventures provides such an environment, enabling promising development-stage inventions to become stand-alone businesses. Golden Pine Ventures focuses its efforts on the earliest stage of technology development – on those opportunities which have the greatest growth potential, and consequently, those which need the most care.
