It’s VC. But different.

We challenge the established order, prioritising collaboration over egos and purpose-plus-profit. As Europe's largest early-stage impact investor, we believe financial success and positive impact go hand-in-hand. We're building an ecosystem of founders and investors to channel capital towards solving the world's biggest challenges together – and having fun while doing it.
