About

Look hard at your capital options. Look again.

 

We source strategic capital from our clients’ value chains, from their current and potential end-users, and from their partners. Using this methodology, we have raised over $100m for early and growth stage energy-tech and clean-tech businesses over the last ten years.

 

The investor network we draw on is the product of experience, ongoing research and our willingness to challenge perspectives. We cultivate and grow our corporate investor base through regular events and ongoing research. This lets us quickly and efficiently connect capital with innovation.
