Moving the needle with advisory services and investments in materials sustainability and impact entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurs, corporates, governments and academia can tap into our industry expertise and impact investing skills while investors are presented sound, impactful investment cases.
What we offer you
Know-how and the financial means to get something done.
Transitioning to a carbon neutral society and countering the impact of plastic waste pollution means investing time, effort and money in initiatives that promote recycling, alternative feedstock sources and local circular ecosystems.
Our combined entrepreneurial, corporate and impact investing background allows us to find appropriate cases to invest in or to get called upon for pragmatic advise or executive support.
How we do this is as important as what we do: we limit report and document writing while focusing on tangible deliverables.
of our approach
Significant impact on sustainability & circularity
For all target investments in our portfolio and for all of our advisory work, we assess the inherent sustainability impact that can be obtained. This means that depending on the specific case we investigate the LCA (life cycle assessment), the toxicology aspect and a scoring in terms of our 'theory of change'. With factual data we wish to have a clear picture of how each investment or assignment would have a positive impact on society. This also means that even for advisory services in the end something needs to happen...
Economic viability and technological due dilligence
Similar to traditional investment analysis and M&A due dilligence, we realize that true sustainability efforts can only 'be sustainable' and credible in the long run if they are also economically viable. This is why we specifically built our team around former entrepreneurs and executives that know how to create, run or sucessfully exit a business. Longer term, our signaling function will demonstrate to others that investing in or transitioning to more sustainable or circular set-ups can be worthwile financially. This will trigger other initiatives, proliferating our approach.
Pragmatic, synergetic ecosystem integration
The proof of the pudding... This is where the entrepreneurship comes in. Regardless whether we deal with investments or advisory, we like to activate entire value ecosystems. This greatly facilitates our delivery in advisory projects but it also significantly raises our success rate in investment cases. Sustainable chemistry and impact investing thrive when different partners join forces. Because of the way we are organized, we are also very well connected once the rubber hits the road. We know who to talk to in order to get traction. Soon rather than late, this also results in synergies in our portfolio of activities.
Your rationale to team up with us
USP's for a Real Deal
Sector and Subject Matter Expertise
Highly reputable investment professionals all confirm the strength of having industry entrepreneurs in the lead of our investment strategy. We have lived and breathed chemicals and we know where it hurts as well as where the opportunities are situated. Moreover, we know how to run innovation projects, chemical development cycles and companies in or adjacent to the chemical industry. Why? Because this is what we've done before. We just chose to turn this experience to better use for the sake of everyone, investors and society at large.
Unique Complementary Functional Team Skills
Quite often investment portfolios are managed by financial experts and lawyers. Those profiles are indeed also part of our team, but on top of that, we can build upon the authority and experience of our innovation experts, captains of industry, heavy-duty entrepreneurs, investors and many more.
Relevant Local & Global Network and Partnership Leverage
Our founding partners and core team can achieve a lot, but it is our respective networks and the inherent partnerships out of those networks that really leverage our own skills and hence our impact. With this connectivity we can get access to almost all necessary people and resources to materialize our intentions.
Time, Place and Opportunity Matched with Passion, Energy and Credibility
Stating that the time is now is unmistakenly true. Nevertheless, those standing up are quite often not the ones who can really force a breakthrough. It will take credible, authentic industry leaders to support the transition. On a more personal level, you will have a hard time finding a more colorful pallet of individuals with such passion, energy and determination to have a positive impact. Indeed, it almost seems as if this core team was meant to come together and has been preparing this initiative throughout our respective careers.
