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 changemakers delivering proven solutions to urgent global problems. 

For each sector we invest in, we develop a theory of change and take a view on how we can progress from the current position to a more positive future, identifying strategic innovations, business model developments, and new technologies that can drive that change in a commercially viable manner. Recognising that financial, social and environmental returns can be mutually reinforcing, our investment teams are required to develop and defend both an impact and investment thesis ahead of acquiring any new holdings. Following investment, the team remain proactive partners for growth and remain focused on supporting the company leadership.

We prioritise entrepreneurs and invest in technology-driven businesses that create substantial impact on a large scale, delivering attractive returns for our investors. Our commitment extends to employing a holistic and pione-ering approach to generate value, encompassing both financial returns and positive societal or environmental impact. This approach is consistently applied across our portfolio companies, encompassing strategy, skill enhancement, and fundraising efforts.
