Finding a sensible investment opportunity that is not only profitable but ethical is an ocean that many would rather not find themselves in. It’s true that we all want to see our money making a difference in society these days, but the real challenge lies in knowing who to trust to do profitably.
While far too many startups are left drowning, we are sifting through the debris to unearth the trailblazers. Our specialists are dedicated to finding the ones that stand out above the rest — the blue oceans.
We do it differently than the other funds. Our process starts from the demand side: identifying the problem and securing adequate demand from large institutions first. From there we canvas the market for the best technologies to ensure that the offtake is secured and locked in. Then, we accelerate the time to deployment through investment in fine-tuning and scaling.
Fund for Sustainability and Energy (FUND4SE) is a venture capital and alternative investments fund focused on investing in unique sustainability and energy efficiency technologies. Our deep industry knowledge enables us to shepherd product development from its inception to completion. We provide all the necessary support and expertise, including production scale optimization, increasing manufacturing capabilities, and cost reduction.
In 2019, there were enough greenhouse gas emissions to equal 11 billion passenger vehicles being driven for one full year. It’s no surprise temperatures are rising around the world, at a rate of up to 10°C in the arctic regions over the last half century alone.
But this is starting to change. Policymakers worldwide are enacting stricter regulations every year, punishing carbon emissions and making traditional fuels cost prohibitive.
We have witnessed rapid growth in the demand for energy efficient sources and sustainable technologies along with a drop in energy-related CO2 emissions in advanced economies. Many companies have already started turning to alternative energy.
And this is just the start of that trend.
This is why we are at the forefront of sustainability and energy efficiency. With ever-increasing energy costs, toxic levels of pollution, and projected natural resource shortages, the importance of such technologies cannot be underestimated.
