VENTURE CAPITAL

The first early-stage strategy in Australia to seamlessly combine climate and nature technology.

ABOUT THE STRATEGY

The world is mobilising around the climate and nature crises, disrupting markets and surfacing new opportunities.

$202 trillion in global investment is required to achieve net zero and preserve nature, on pathways that require new breakthrough technologies and solutions.

As corporations move to decarbonise and regulators act to accelerate the transition, demand for solutions is intensifying and the available investment pipeline grows.

Pollination’s venture strategy offers a risk-adjusted and diversified approach to grasping opportunities that emerge from the world’s most important transition.

We target high-potential companies developing climate and nature technologies and solutions, making investments in the range of $4-12 million. The strategy offers a ten-year term and five-year investment period, with investments to begin in late 2024.
