INVESTING IN SUSTAINABLE TECH

We are supporting founders to build sustainable and profitable tech businesses through purpose-aligned capital. Our goal is to enable founders to align their values and mission with their ownership and financing structures and mobilize more capital towards purpose-driven companies delivering strong financial returns and positive impact for people and the planet. 

We are looking for innovative solutions that will advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

While we only invest in a handful of companies a year, it means we can focus supporting those who we believe really have the team and drive to succeed.
