Zero Carbon Fund passes £1m fundraising milestone!
Earlier this month, we passed £1m in funding committed to the Zero Carbon Fund. A huge thank you to all our investors, advisors, supporters and partners for helping us reach the minimum commitment level for the fund, especially in these unprecedented times.
For us, achieving one milestone only brings the next into sharper focus, and we are excited about spending the next two months meeting more investors to reach our fundraising target of £2m+. After that we can move into investment mode, and speaking to entrepreneurs in the last months has made it even more clear how important investments in this space will be over the next 12 months, to ensure the survival and success of the best startups in the sector.
Despite the lockdown and challenges facing us all from Coronavirus, there's still lots going on and we'll be keeping up to date with latest in the climate investing world at the following virtual conferences in May - see you there:
Ecosummit Zoom May 6th
Cleantech Forum virtual May 19-20th (in-person Luxembourg event moved to December 7-9)
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy.
Pippa and Alex.
