Pete Okrasa has been angel investing in several successful start-ups, and has mentored other founders. Pete took contrarian view on nuclear and launched Pioneer Nuclear in 2023 as a means to make a cleaner world today,

Pioneer Nuclear derives its name from Pioneer Valley, part of New England's Connecticut River Valley. Two nuclear power plants (Vermont Yankee & Connecticut Yankee) sourced water from the River. Our headquarters in Windsor, CT is located north of Hartford. Windsor previously hosted a site for post Manhattan Project era work, such as the S1C Prototype Reactor, a U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Navy joint program.
