Times have changed. The world is in turmoil. Social and environmental change dominate our thinking. It’s no longer about money. Money comes and goes, but the state of the world is a more valuable and lifelong investment. It’s about health, not wealth. That is what drives our investments, our risky and daring undertakings. That is what drives the operating companies that we have invested in. We like to upturn venture capital, to rethink the return on our investments. In the end we like our investments to contribute to a cleaner and better world. We turn finance into foresight.
We want to change the world with capital, science and technology. We convert our ‘wealth’ into ventures that have the capacity to make the world a better place. We convert dirty water to clean water. We convert waste into energy. We convert ideas into products. We continually invest in green technology to serve humanity. And that means we have a longer breath than the average investment company. We are less focused on economic return. We aim for ecological return. So, we have to last longer. We can’t just give up. We don’t give up.
We only stop when ‘a risky or daring undertaking’ is transformed into an operational success. Money can wait. Because ventures are journeys. Adventures. With bumps and setbacks. We are fit enough to absorb those blows for each of our operating companies. We are here to stay. Because we want our companies to transform the world, even if it’s just a little bit. We do not invest in an infinite number of companies. We select and keep focus. We serve a purpose.
Rethink on return
We invest in science and technology that bring change to the world. We use our money to accommodate the gifted people at our companies. To help them be the best they can be. As far as we are concerned, they are our true capital. Our future founders. So, we hope you found us, because you would like to do business with them. Because you believe in their change to the world as much as we do. We have turned finance into faith.
The roots of our knowledge and capital
The investors and directors at our company have all made their mark in the fields of business, finance and technology. Their vast experiences have become the roots of our knowledge and capital. They make sure our operating companies are in good shape. They turn finance into fitness.
