We are Europe’s leading early-stage tech for good VC. We back ambitious founders using technology to tackle big social and environmental problems that aim to radically improve millions of lives.
At the heart of what we do is the belief that technology has the potential to significantly and positively impact millions of lives.
These are the four key insights that guide our reason for, and approach to, investing in tech for good.
We believe in:
Better solutions are needed to achieve a sustainable planet, a good society and healthy lives. We see an opportunity for ambitious ventures to tackle these challenges and radically reimagine the future for the better. Better solutions aren’t just good for humanity, they’re also a huge market opportunity too. An estimated £9 trillion can be unlocked each year by the businesses that ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for people and planet.
Technology designed with the specific intention to drive positive impact has huge potential – providing opportunities for greater scale and new approaches to addressing big social and environmental challenges. It enables rapid growth, global reach and affordability through declining unit costs. It also enables network effects where the value and positive benefits can increase exponentially with growth.
A growing demand
There is a rapidly growing demand for business to be a force for good. Talented entrepreneurs want to put their skills to use on causes that matter, investors are seeking out values aligned opportunities, and customers want to support businesses making a positive impact.
Diverse teams develop more accessible products and services, deliver better returns and better impact. Our commitment to seeking out and engaging with diverse founders gives us visibility and access to brilliant opportunities other investors regularly miss out on.
