What we look for

We look for early stage companies with strong management teams that have potential for impact within the UN SDGs.

How we invest

Our average check size is $50-500k, with follow-on capital reserved. We prefer equity-based investments. We want to be the first institutional money in. We’re comfortable investing pre-revenue. We’re less comfortable pre-prototype.

How we help

We conduct consulting and research projects with our entrepreneurs. We’re willing to jump in and get involved to help do market launches and build financial models.

UN's SDGs

We focus on companies that create impact in any of the seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals

Innovative

We expect companies to offer innovative solutions to the world’s problems, whether it's a new technology, new geography, or new approach.

Sustainable

We look for companies that focus on sustainable solutions.  Impact driven by profit goes further.

Scalable

We focus on companies that create scalable solutions. The size of the impact should be connected directly to the size of the company.
