Transform and improve our society

Patient capital

  • We invest for profit, with patience.
  • We provide equity-like and debt financing to help companies scale, with flexibility and security to help grow good and sound businesses.

Possitive social and environmental impact

  • We promote initiatives that obtain both financial and social returns. In addition to capital retribution, they need to have a possitive impact on the society.
  • Social impact must be measurable, and we include these metrics into our return requirements and reporting.
  • Impact investment is not philanthropy. There has to be a positive correlation, and not a trade-off, between the impact objectives and the business model’s financial return.
