We design and produce engineered materials that dramatically increase the energy density of rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Our products enable smaller, lighter, longer lasting electronic devices and unlock mass adoption of affordable, long-range electric vehicles. Our developments represent the next commercial breakthrough in battery science - only the fifth in over 150 years of battery history.
Sila was founded in 2011 and is based in Alameda, CA. Our founders are two early Tesla Motors battery engineers and a Professor of Materials Science at Georgia Tech. We're backed by Tier 1 venture capital firms, led by Sutter Hill Ventures, Matrix Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, and In-Q-Tel.
Our company culture is built on personal growth, mutual trust, inclusiveness, and safety. We are dedicated to building a world-class materials company, where our team is close, debates are data-driven, and our office puppies are named Angstrom, Lumen, Gadget, and Miso.
