Regardless of Brexit, these are exciting times for the EIS industry.
The sheer volume of opportunities is attracting more and more new funds to the market – and they are very welcome.
In most instances, although the fund might be new, the people involved are highly experienced and experts in their fields. Some have been investing in young companies for many years but are now offering a fund for the first time and are seeking support from the adviser market.
Hardman & Co’s New Entrant Network initiative has been created to smooth their path to market.
In this feature, we take the opportunity to showcase some of these new entrants and what they have to offer. We think you’ll be as impressed by their potential as we are.
Zero Carbon Capital
The climate crisis is an urgent and existential threat to humanity. Record levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are making extreme weather related events more frequent and severe: hurricanes, droughts, floods, heatwaves and wildfires. Tackling this global challenge requires big technological innovations that can dramatically reduce our carbon output. The companies that will invent and commercialise the next wave of those technologies are being created now, and need seed capital to grow.
The Zero Carbon Fund is a new EIS fund investing in these early-stage opportunities. We find ambitious teams and breakthrough ideas that can scale to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by half a gigaton per year, and deliver long-term value. We believe companies that make significant contributions to our zero-carbon transition will be highly valuable as the financial landscape is fundamentally rewritten by climate risk.
The ZCC team has a long history of engaging in this space and spent the last 4 years investing their own money as angels in the US and UK. They have seen first hand the significant growth in demand for investment and in public interest in this space. Along the way they have built a strong, global network enabling them to offer a unique perspective on the opportunity to investors.
We believe the zero-carbon transition will produce a significant number of breakout companies and the Zero Carbon Fund is your opportunity to participate in that value creation.
