We are part of a global ecosystem
A fund built by successful entrepreneurs, who have a track record for growing business. Our formula is simple, take a markets-first approach which means assess the market need and the viability of a successful outcome.
It takes great knowledge and experience to build the ecosystem needed to assess the viability of a technology. This is even more so with clean and climate tech given the complexity and interdependency with infrastructure and policy frameworks.
