We're Sustainability Veterans

We are successful Entrepreneurs and experienced Venture Capitalists, having spent careers navigating the Sustainability industry. Leverage our industry networks, experience, and capital to get your start-up from idea to exit.

 

Verticals We Believe In

We invest in all kinds of sustainability companies, but here are a few themes we are bullish on.

 
 

 

Our Offer: Investment + 1Y Growth Programme

Sustainable Accelerator provides more than just capital. Along with an investment of £50 - £250k, portfolio companies participate in a 1y Growth Programme, offering expert support, strategy planning, and industry networks.

 
 

We believe one size doesn't fit all

That's why our investment team spends time understanding your capital requirements. We offer equity investments of between £50 - £250k on negotiable terms to help you grow.

     

    Advice, services & networks for sustainability

    Our 1y Growth Programme is designed to make life easier for startups. Founders have enough on their plates in building great products; let us provide some unfair advantages vs. competition with:

    • experienced mentors (get routine 1-on-1 strategy support from proven industry veterans)
    • portfolio services (use our Portfolio Services to help you grow quicker than competitors)
    • readymade network (leverage our deep industry network to your advantage)
