Why Archimedes’ Offspring?

Archimedes (born c. 287 BC, Syracuse, Sicily, Italy—died 212/211 BC, Syracuse), possibly the world’s greatest scientist — at least the greatest in the classical age – was a physicist, mathematician, astronomer, engineer and inventor.  His law of buoyancy (known as the Archimedes’ Principle), from the discovery of which the famous “Eureka!” anecdote emerged, was both foundational and profound.

Most importantly however, and despite his brilliance as a mathematician, in his own time Archimedes was famous not so much for his work in mathematics as for his inventions, which were many.

Given his importance and his impact on the field of inventing, and, in turn, inventing’s impact on the development of Western Civilization, it can easily be seen that all of those who consider themselves among the community of inventors in the West are, in some sense, his “offspring”.

It is from this perspective (and with a profound sense of humility) that we, at Archimedes’ Offspring, have come together to provide a new means of investment funding. By enabling investment in innovation, we will allow many, many more inventions, ultimately, to see the light of day.

Why Being a Startup May Not Be Your Smartest Move

"Why do founders of so many startups build things that no one wants?

Because they begin by trying to think of startup ideas. That m.o. is doubly dangerous: it doesn't merely yield few good ideas; it yields bad ideas that sound plausible enough to fool you into working on them."

--Paul Graham, Startup Ideas

  • Archimedes’ Offspring, an unincorporated “umbrella” sponsor of direct investments in inventions (“AO”), owns and, under a contract between AOS Management, Inc. (“AOSM”) and each of the invention families of funds identified on this website (individually, an “Invention Family” and collectively, the “Invention Families”), operates a website at (the “Site”). By using this website, you accept AO’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
  • This overview does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to make an investment (the “Investment”). No such offer or solicitation will ever be sponsored by AO, and no such offer or solicitation will ever be made by any Invention Family, prior to the delivery by the Invention Family of definitive documentation relating to such offering which complies with all federal and state laws pertaining to the offering, sale, and delivery after purchase, of securities. See “Special Disclaimers Pertaining to Testing-the-Waters” set forth below.
  • Before making any investment decision with respect to any proposed Investment in an Invention Family that may be offered in the future, potential investors are advised to carefully read the related subscription and investment documents (the “Documents”). Further, potential investors are advised to consult with their own tax, legal and financial advisors.
  • This overview may contain one or more preliminary summaries of the general outline and intent (but not the specific “terms”) of a proposed investment in one or more Invention Families that may be offered by such Family under AO’s sponsorship in the future.
  • This overview, and such preliminary summaries, if any, do not, and does not, purport to be complete and this overview and any such summaries, are qualified in its and their entirety by reference to the more detailed discussion contained in the actual text of any Documents made in connection with one or more such future offerings of securities by one or more Invention Families.

  • At present, none of the services provided by AOSM to, or on behalf of, AO, or to, or on behalf of, any Invention Family, constitutes “crowdfunding” as described in Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”).All Investments involve risks and may result in partial or total loss of the Investment.
  • While information AO, AOSM or any Invention Family obtains from third parties and uses is believed to be reliable, none of AO, AOSM and such Invention Family, nor any other party affiliated with any of them, can ensure the accuracy or completeness of data provided by such third parties.
  • None of AO, AOSM, or any Invention Families (or any other entity with which any of the foregoing may be affiliated or associated) provide tax advice and thus they do not, and will not, represent in any manner that the outcomes described herein or in statements issued by any Invention Family or other such entities will result in any particular tax consequence.

  • Some of the statements contained herein may be considered forward-looking statements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause the project’s actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially and adversely different from any future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.
  • In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “targeted,” “projected,” “underwritten,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements concerning the business of one or more of the Invention Families or their, property, risk factors, plans and projections.
  • Although AO believes that the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements are reasonable, guarantees of future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements cannot be made. Moreover, neither AO nor any person or entity affiliated or associated with AO (including, without limitation, AOSM and each Invention Family) assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of forward-looking statements. No person or entity is under any duty to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform them to actual results.
  • Except as required by law, neither AO, nor any third party affiliated or associated with AO (including, without limitation, AOSM and each Invention Family) assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of any forward-looking statements. Neither AO nor any third party affiliated or associated with AO (including, without limitation, AOSM and each Invention Family) assumes any obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason or to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in previously-stated expectations.


  • AOSM, on behalf of AO and one of the Invention Families, is currently assisting such Invention Family in its “testing-the-waters” of a potential securities offering under Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Such arrangement among AOSM, AO and the Invention Family in question being hereinafter collectively referred to as “AOS”.
  • This “testing-the-waters” process allows AOS to determine whether there may be interest in an eventual offering of such Invention Family’s securities. However, AOS is not under any obligation to make an offering under Regulation A. AOS may choose to make an offering to some, but not all, of the people who indicate an interest in investing, and that offering may not be made under Regulation A. For example, AOS may determine, instead, to proceed with an offering under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, in which case AOS will only offer securities to accredited investors as defined by Rule 501(a) of Regulation D. Alternatively, and after a sufficient length of time to permit the “cooling” of any interest in the securities of the Invention Family, AOS may determine to proceed with an offering under Regulation Crowdfunding (Title III of the Federal JOBS Act) of such Invention Family’s securities, in which case it will comply with all of the regulations and rules pertaining to such exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
  • If AOS does go ahead with an offering under Regulation A, it will only be able to make sales after it has filed an offering statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and only after the SEC has qualified such offering statement. The information in the offering statement will be more complete than the “testing-the-waters” materials and could differ in important ways. You must read the offering statement filed with the SEC.
  • No money or other consideration is being solicited for any Regulation A offering at this time and if sent in to AOS will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities in a Regulation A offering made by AOS can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received until AOS’s offering statement is qualified with the SEC. Any such offer to buy securities may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of its acceptance given after the qualification date. Any indications of interest in any AOS offering involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.
  • No “testing-of-waters” or offer to sell securities or solicitation of an offer to buy securities is being made at this point in time (or at any point in time in the future) in the states of Colorado, Massachusetts, Florida and New York unless and until AOS has (i) made such required filings with such states, and (ii) secured compliance with such states’ laws, regarding the offer, sale, and delivery after purchase, of the securities to be offered in such states. In addition, no offer to sell securities or solicitation of an offer to buy securities is being made in any state where such offer or sale is not permitted under the blue sky or state securities laws thereof. No offering is being made to individual investors unless and until the offering has been registered in that state or an exemption from registration exists and has been secured.
  • As indicated above, at present AOS is “testing-the-waters” under Regulation A and pursuant to such Regulation A may decide to move forward and complete an offering under Tier 2 of Regulation A. If and when a determination is made to move forward with such an offer, AOS intends that such offer will be exempted from state registration pursuant to federal law. Although an exemption from registration under state law may be available at that time, AOS may still be required to provide a notice filing and pay a fee in individual states, and where required by such individual states, a consent to service or process.
