We are a small, boutique fund aiming to capitalise on the frowth of the clean-tech industry world-wide

About GDP

Our ambition is to identify and then work with management to understand how we can support promising solutions and technologies in the sector. A general philosophy we adopt in our investment appraisal is that we will only back technologies that have the potential to be (as Google put it) RE<C.

We will dedicate 5% of our funds to projects not in the clean-tech sector. These investments will tend to be in partnerships with very early stage entrepreneurs (often just backing an idea we like), a highly speculative stake on an innovation or outcome and are made with off-key investment motivations – tending to be philanthropic or simply an opportunity to be involved with stimulating people in an unusual project. These investments form the basis of an early stage pipeline to build towards an exotic fund in the future.
