To protect our planet,
we must act now

In our linear economy we are depleting our natural resources fast. We are currently consuming 1,7 times as much resources as the earth can annually provide. If the whole world population would consume the same as in the Netherlands, the footprint would be even more, 2,7 earths. As we only have one planet, we need to use the earth’s resources smarter than the current take-make-waste approach if we want to preserve our welfare and maintain a liveable planet.

Help us shape a better future


One visionary investor, Pensioenfonds Detailhandel, is already on board. We’re currently inviting other Dutch professional investors to join us on our mission to create a more rewarding and sustainable future. Are you a non-Dutch investor? Please get in touch to see how you can work with us in the near future.

We invest in game changers

who are making the circular economy a reality.

We finance a broad range of different technologies that will impact value chains worldwide. By financing innovation, we help drive the transition to a circular economy.

We bridge the funding gap for circular innovators

Innovations need sufficient funding. But all too often, we see innovation compromised because of a lack of financial support to realise commercial-scale production facilities. So, when technology is too innovative for banks, but too capital intensive for venture capital, that’s when we step in.

We provide financing solutions to bridge the funding gap in circular innovation. By supporting innovative circular companies, we enable them to prove their technology and business model on a commercial scale, leading to further investment, large-scale application and global impact.
