Do you believe business should improve the world?


We invest in companies that do.

We invest in companies that matter.

We focus on investing in high-growth companies whose products, services and supply chain intrinsically deliver positive social and environmental benefit. When our businesses succeed they subsequently deliver financial and social/environmental returns at and through scale: “Companies that Matter”.

We do it by partnering with accomplished, entrepreneurial management teams to build companies with authentic, purpose-driven cultures where people want to work and values-driven brands that consumers want to associate with.

When we succeed, we create extraordinary financial, social and environmental value for our companies, their employees, investors, and the communities and customers they touch.

Our Approach

1Build with Purpose

We focus on purpose-driven companies led by impassioned management teams who aim to improve the world, not just extract wealth.

2Built to Last

We take a long term view. Our focus is not to build businesses that need to be “sold”, but to build businesses that others want to associate with.

3Partnership First

We view ourselves as partners, not financiers; Sustainable value creation is built shoulder to shoulder and in the trenches… not from a distance.

4Shared Value

We seek integrated value creation through a stakeholder approach: by improving lives and promoting sustainability for both human and natural resources.

Simple Measures

These are simple measures, built with clear intent. These are not add-ons, nor nice-to-have-value-enhancements, but core strategic values that we believe can help build a more sustainable, powerful expression of capitalism.
