Member Profile

Every issue we will be profiling two EISA members and this quarter its Zero Carbon and Haatch Ventures If you wish your company to be profiled next issue let us know.

Zero Carbon

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 companies. We look for ambitious teams with breakthrough ideas that can scale to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by half a gigaton per year and deliver long-term value. We believe these companies making significant contributions to our zero-carbon transition will be highly valuable in the future.

The ZCC Founders, Pippa and Alex Gawley, have experience angel investing in this kind of decarbonisation technology in the US. They have developed a global network to find and evaluate new companies in this space, and are supported by an experienced and well-connected advisory team bringing additional technical and commercial expertise. ZCC are working with Sapphire Capital Partners LLP as the Investment Manager.

You can find out more about the Zero Carbon Fund, the team, previous investments, and events we are attending (virtually) at www.zerocarbon.capital. Feel free to get in touch at info@zerocarbon.capital.

Haatch Ventures

Haatch Ventures is a new EIS Fund, launched by four technology & digital entrepreneurs in 2018. Its team are hands-on value creators.They have been there, built scaled companies of their own and sold them and now use that knowledge, experience and network to accelerate the growth of their portfolio companies, helping those that partner with them to avoid the challenges of early stage growth. 

They look for startups that can exhibit highly scalable and disruptive digital models for growth, with the sweet spot being an MVP with some early traction in market requiring investment to scale to Series A. The team back the pioneers of the digital revolution and currently have companies such as BuyMieMarvelPoplar and other high-growth stars within their portfolio.
