Encouraging diversity in portfolio companies
Hard problems. Tough solutions.
Human activities emit about 50B tonnes of CO2e per year. In order to slow, and then reverse, catastrophic climate change we need to reduce emissions to zero and then go negative.
Huge parts of the global economy, responsible for billions of tons of these emissions, have no current viable plan to decarbonise. We need to bring together the power of deep scientific innovation and market dynamics to create better ways to do almost everything. This is not business as usual. It is a race to slash our emissions, reverse the effects of climate change and build whole new industries along the way.
How we help.
We're scientists by education and have spent our careers at the intersection of technology, innovation and business. We've been fortunate to work with, and learn from, some of the smartest people in the world and to have worked on products that have impacted billions of lives.
Six years ago we realised that what we were doing would not matter very much if we aren't able to avoid the most disastrous consequences of the climate crisis. Since then, we've turned our attention to what we can do to support entrepreneurs and scientists in the fight for the future of our planet.
