Sandbox Industries: Bridging the Gap. Our name reveals what we do: connect large companies with small entrepreneurial ones. We do so across a variety of business platforms: collaborative venture capital funds, accelerator programs, and through consulting services. The “Sandbox” in our name references the creative, innovative, and unstructured nature of innovation present in disruptive emerging companies. “Industries” represents the expertise, operational know-how, brand, and industry footprint of our corporate clients. Sandbox Industries connects corporations with entrepreneurs for the benefit of each.
