We invest in growth-stage companies globally, that pursue scalable and technology driven business models around three key impact themes that are central to building a better tomorrow: people, planet and productivity. Within these themes, we focus on key sectors that offer disproportionate value creation and positive impact opportunities in response to pressing social and environmental problems.
We have developed a theory of change for each sector, taking a view on how we can progress from the current state to a better future and identifying business model innovations that can best drive the change in a commercially viable manner.
We are entrepreneur centric and invest in businesses that leverage technology and build impact at scale to provide good returns for investors.
We take a comprehensive and innovative approach to value creation (return and impact) in our portfolio companies across strategy, capability development and fundraising.
