Paul G. Allen founded Vulcan Inc. in 1986 with Jo Lynn Allen to manage his business and charitable endeavors.
Those endeavors include the creation of innovative technologies, award-winning films and vibrant new neighborhoods. They're about the revolution of rock 'n roll, the humanity of science fiction, and the poetry of a fingertip catch. They're about reaching from the tiniest genome to the very stratosphere, and most importantly, about improving the way people live, learn, do business, and experience the world.
Ours is compelling and diverse work, driven by strong business strategies and a unique vision. Take a look at our portfolio and you'll find an impressive range of projects, a track record of growth, and an abiding commitment to the part of the world in which we live.
Vulcan is focused on where the future lies, and we're excited to be on the journey there.
Vulcan creates and advances a variety of world-class endeavors and high impact initiatives that change and improve the way we live, learn, do business and experience the world.
Vulcan is a progressive, innovative, entrepreneurial organization powered by individuals with exceptional talents and skills who are all aligned through a common aspiration—to change the world by adding value to and improving the quality of people's lives.
