Moore is a strong supporter of start-up technology companies and has been instrumental in several very successful ventures. The total amount of venture capital raised for Moore’s ventures exceeds $400 million.

EvoNexus, founded by Moore and Vice Admiral Walter Davis in 2009, has admitted 13 companies, five of which have successfully graduated, with more graduations expected next years. So far, from only $200,000 in cash community investments in EvoNexus companies, more than $55 million has been raised in venture capital. Perminova is an EvoNexus company.
