Investment Fund; Venture Capital

OVERVIEW

Description

The EIF takes a systems-based approach to sustainability investment, primarily investing in more capital-efficient opportunities than the typical clean technology fund. We seek out niches within “cleantech” that have not received the investor attention they deserve – this results in better investment opportunities, and greater impact with less capital. We believe small venture funds are better aligned with client interests, and ensure a more disciplined approach to investment.
