The Ecosystem Integrity Fund (“EIF”) is a sustainability-focused venture capital fund.
We are primarily early-stage investors, targeting sectors like renewable energy, green chemistry, and resource efficiency. We typically make initial lead investments in the range of $2-4M.
The Fund seeks to invest in companies and projects that reduce or ameliorate key threats to ecosystem integrity:
- Land fragmentation and conversion
- Depletion of productive capacity
- Contamination of land, air, and water
The EIF takes a systems-based approach to sustainability investment, primarily investing in more capital-efficient opportunities than the typical clean technology fund. We seek out niches within “cleantech” that have not received the investor attention they deserve – this results in better investment opportunities, and greater impact with less capital. We believe small venture funds are better aligned with client interests, and ensure a more disciplined approach to investment.
