about us

our purpose

The evolution towards ‘sustainable capitalism’ has accelerated across all investing classes including venture capital, private equity, and public equity. Lightrock is an impact investor that seeks to achieve financial as well as societal and environmental returns by investing in businesses that contribute positively to humankind and the planet. Since Lightrock's impact investing efforts have been initiated by its Founder and Chairman Prince Max von Liechtenstein, the organization aims to leverage its pioneering position and experience to scale and mainstream impact investing across asset classes over the next decade.

"An impact mindset around global megatrends combined with pioneering expertise and deep local context allows us to identify and nurture scalable high-impact business solutions to global challenges, and to build portfolios that are relevant and well-balanced from a risk and return perspective.”

Prince Max von Liechtenstein, Founder and Chairman

"I am convinced that the intersection of growth, tech and impact will become even more important in the future. I am excited we help drive this development with Lightrock and contribute to a more sustainable form of capitalism.”

Pal Erik Sjatil, CEO and Managing Partner
