People. Passion. Joy.

Our team shares a commitment to advancing what we believe is one of the most important emerging endeavors of humanity – improving emotional wellbeing. We believe that the vastness of the opportunities requires a singular investment and collaboration focus.

The Story of Joy

Today’s complex world and our intense lifestyles create stress, anxiety and other challenges that can affect our emotional wellbeing. 

At Joy Ventures, our mission is to counterbalance those challenges by advancing the science of everyday joy.

We work with the world’s most talented scientists and entrepreneurs to evolve their ideas into products that will help us all live more joyfully.

Joy Ventures was founded by Corundum Open Innovation in 2017.

This starts with fostering an interdisciplinary innovation community, all the way to funding research, and launching and growing new ventures.

Here’s how we do it:
