The team

We are witnessing one of the biggest societal transformations in human history. Climate change is here, and every element of our economy will need to adapt if we hope to pass on a livable planet for future generations. Entrepreneurs are central to this transformation.

We believe that climate entrepreneurs deserve fast capital without dilution or unnecessary complexity, and on terms that make sense for them. We are seasoned operators and finance experts who have raised every kind of capital there is and backed dozens of talented entrepreneurs around the world. We know how painful fundraising can be, and we’re building Enduring Planet to be a different kind of financing partner.
