What we look for
Our investment philosophy is based on a conviction: tomorrow’s most successful companies will strategically elevate the definition of value beyond financial returns to include human capital, innovation capital and societal impact.
HUMAN capital: Innovators with radical minds and hearts
We look for daring and talented entrepreneurs who are ambitious, relentlessly problem-focused, and take a lean, bottom-up approach.
INNOVATION capital: Proprietary advances and innovations
We seek out companies that have already developed proprietary technologies. Tech companies with strong IP are a particular focus, as are protected scientific advances and innovative business models. These are businesses that are already ‘live’, and have identified a market, built a core, world-class team and developed a groundbreaking product or service.
SOCIETAL impact: STRONG INTENTION
Founders we back have a strong intention for large-scale societal impact. They're committed to social and environmental progress, and see their company as the vehicle to achieve that.
FINANCIAL VALUE: Multi-billion dollar markets
We're sector-agnostic, but tend to focus on:
Overlooked markets: sectors with little incentive to innovate or update existing products to better fit their market's actual need. e.g. Food/Ag Tech, Energy, Finance, Cities
Underserved demographies: segments of the population that have traditionally been ignored by venture and impact investors alike. e.g. Ageing Population, Disabled Population, Immigrants
- New markets: Sectors which did not exist just a few years ago, but have grown exponentially in recent years to become pillars of our future life. e.g. Mindfulness, Sharing Economy, Digital Currencies
What we offer
Future Positive Capital isn’t just a fund. We’re a collaborative partner that forges meaningful, long-term commitments with our entrepreneurs, providing flexible funds and bespoke support.
FILLING THE EQUITY GAP
We fill the equity gap, writing our first cheques between $250,000 and $2 million, with the capacity to follow-on in subsequent financing rounds for companies that outperform.
Leadership development & personal growth
Building a startup is hard. In fact, 40% of startups fail because of human reasons: team dynamics, disharmony between co-founders, burn outs... To solve for that, we work in long-term partnership with entrepreneurs to develop their potential personally and professionally and support their wellbeing and work/life balance as well as their business leadership.
Needs-led customized support, powered by our global community
We built a global 150-person-strong community of functional experts, industry experts, corporate leaders, and entrepreneurs for our entrepreneurs to leverage at every turn.
A commitment to the triple bottom line
Just like our founders, we're committed to societal progress. We work with founders to identify one impact indicator and track progress against that goal.
