The Next Big Thing


PJ Piper identifies game-changing innovation and adds the tools to ensure success.

Company // Anticipate Ventures, LLC

Entrepreneur // PJ Piper

What They Do // Anticipate Ventures is a company that anticipates the next big thing. It is a technology venturing partner that helps entrepreneurs, research institutions and corporates to launch, fund and grow companies in precision agriculture, healthcare and artificial intelligence. The company identifies game-changing innovation, addresses the challenges of tech transfer and then cultivates from idea to product to market. CEO and founder PJ Piper said their aim is to “dive in and make it happen.”

The Inspiration // Piper has a background in investment banking and mergers and acquisitions in New York. But he wanted to advise less and do more. The first company he started in Boston is now on the New York Stock Exchange, and he is excited about the many opportunities and strategic partners he is able to work with in Kansas City.

Kansas City’s reputation for entrepreneurial support attracted him.  “You are only two degrees of separation from anybody in town,”
he said.

WHAT’S NEXT? // Anticipate Ventures will continue to help launch companies focused on creating change and making a difference.
