Planet A Ventures is an impact investment fund looking to collaborate with start-ups that have a measurable positive impact on the planet while building profitable businesses. We believe that the venture capital industry as it exists today needs to pay far bigger attention on the most pressing issues of our time. While few players start to adopt additional metrics of success beyond short-term financial profit, the vast majority still leaves out the bigger picture regarding the impact on people and planet. Planet A wants to be the driver for change and therefore support the next generation of startups by providing: - Early-stage capital - Operational best practices - Scientific impact measurement & forecasting support - Business Development & Customer Access - Support for follow-on financing rounds - Strategic sparring and contacts through the Planet A Network Supported start-ups maximise their impact potential faster and more reliably. We foster measurable impact in four main areas: climate change, resource exploitation, waste and biodiversity. We demonstrate that positive impact for the planet can go hand in hand with financial returns, making us a role model for sustainable entrepreneurship and investments.
