Why are you excited about sustainable investing?
We are now riding the next great wave of technological change, driven by entrepreneurs who want to lead an environmental revolution. But unlike in the 90s, when Silicon Valley was at the heart of the action, this revolution is taking place in Europe. Governments, large corporations, and the European people are all on the same side, creating a fertile environment for startups to both prosper and make an impact.
Our experience, network and rich history means that we spot the investment opportunities others miss.
