Green Generation Fund

The Green Generation Fund invests in the boldest Food Tech and Green Tech start-ups for a resilient society within planetary boundaries. We focus on early-stage investments, from pre-seed to Series A, across Europe and North America. 

We believe that only frontier tech can tackle climate change, help societies adapt to climate change and resource shortages. Rather than solely adapting to or mitigating climate change effects, we aim to strengthen societies against them. Hence, we focus our investments on driving resilience in a less predictable environment and propose solutions to the most important problems of our times. Within this thesis, our focus lies on those crucial sectors that lay the basic foundations of a resilient, decarbonised society: food and energy.

Our portfolio includes companies such as Greenlyte, Change Foods, Reverion, Klim, and Protein Distillery.

“To forge a decarbonized economy and resilient society, we must support visionary founders developing breakthrough technologies, cutting global emissions and improving resource efficiency.”

Dr. Manon Sarah Littek, General Partner
