Joyance Partners


Joyance Partners is a $20M venture capital partnership that invests in companies with the capacity to deliver, or contribute to the delivery of, Delightful Moments.


Delightful Moments are part of all human experience. They are the small, but powerful, separations from the daily humdrum. They are the moments when we feel a bit stronger, calmer, more joyful, more in control, and more in tune with the greater universe. Psychedelics. Meditation. Nicotine. Endorphins. The smell of vanilla. Massage. Jazz. These are all traditional sources for Delightful Moments.

Now, a range of new technologies has the potential to deliver these experiences. They vary from transforming the human (genetics, neurosciences), to creating new forms of human chemistry (personal pharma) to changing human circumstance rather than body (virtual reality).

These new technologies constitute powerful tech Vectors of Happiness.
