We scale innovative organizations and companies by providing a tailored combination of capital, access to professional skills, management know-how and strategic advice. Our portfolio organizations and companies are active in key impact sectors, including: education, health and environmental protection and restoration. Through our engagements, we directly contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
