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.
Our visionary investors, Pensioenfonds Detailhandel, Invest-NL, Onderlinge ‘s-Gravenhage and De Hoop Leven, are 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 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.
Our fund offers a unique return-risk-impact profile for investors, based on our three fundamental pillars:
We target entrepreneurs at a stage where they are not (yet) financed by other investors, giving us a unique market positioning for competitive returns.
Our comprehensive de-risking strategy and market expertise mean we always make sound investments.
By providing the funding businesses need to fully realise their technology, we help them to disrupt their value chain.
