Co-Founder & General Partner
Launched in 2020, Embedded Ventures is a next generation venture capital firm investing in dual-use space startups beyond launch. Best described as “the skunkworks of Venture Capital” because of their unique investment approach and backgrounds, Embedded has a first-of-its-kind partnership with the United States Space Force. Co- Founders Jenna Bryant and Jordan Noone both have atypical industry experiences and strong passions for the communities they represent. The firm invests in the pre-seed and seed stage startups focused on space operations, digital engineering, and advanced manufacturing. To date, Embedded Ventures has announced investments in Chromatic 3D Materials, Inversion, KittyCAD, Slingshot Aerospace and Skyryse.
Jordan has had a lifelong interest in aerospace and began designing and building spaceflight hardware at the University of Southern California. Jordan led USC’s Rocket Propulsion Lab and became the first student and youngest individual in the world to receive Federal Aviation Administration clearance to fly a rocket into space. After graduating, Jordan worked at SpaceX and later co-founded and was the CTO of 3D- printing rocket startup Relativity Space, most recently valued at $4.2B. In addition to his General Partner role at Embedded, he also serves as CEO of portfolio company KittyCAD.
