Investment focus
Overlooked climate sectors. Differentiated technologies.

We take a systems-level approach to finding high impact solutions in traditionally overlooked sectors. We invest in cross cutting, enabling technologies in areas including energy transition, alternative materials, ag & food systems and data & digitization.
