Systems Thinking

Oceans Focused

The problems facing oceans are complex and highly interconnected with other sectors like food production, transportation, and energy. We take a systems level approach to find high impact solutions, often where sectors intersect.

How We're Different

A Better Investment Model

We provide milestones-based, long duration capital and hands-on technical assistance to build high impact companies that help create a healthy ecosystem.

We Focus on the “Missing Middle’

We invest in the ‘missing middle’, where capital is scarce for innovative companies disrupting big markets, to bridge companies from prototype to scale.
