We target long-term value creation, whilst working with founders and entrepreneurs to accelerate the development and implementation of positive impact technologies.

We look for early-stage ventures, typically with capital needs between £0.5 million and £1.5 million, who are developing unique and scalable solutions to significant environmental or social problems. Beyond technology, we also place a strong emphasis on market fit and team, supporting start-ups with strong governance and company ethos, but also with commercial viability and a clear runway to financial growth.

Value-add: We pride ourselves on actively engaging with and supporting our investee companies through every stage of their growth and development; and ultimately through exit. We win as a team. Science-led entrepreneurs often do not yet have the commercial insights to develop and promote their concepts; Elbow Beach Capital acts as a catalyst in converting complex concepts into commercial realities. Our business acumen combined with the environmental science background of our CTO allows us to deliver significant value-add on an accelerated time scale.
