The Ecosystem Integrity Fund (“EIF II”) is a venture fund focused on generating significant financial returns by investing in companies that enable greater environmental sustainability. The fund seeks to achieve this goal by:

1) Identifying real businesses in over-looked industry segments – businesses that have effective, in-demand, and scalable solutions;

2) Providing businesses with the capital, strategic perspective, and hands-on management they need to succeed.

The fund will typically pursue investments in capital-efficient businesses which have not received sufficient investor attention or are niche opportunities.

Since launching in January 2014, the fund has closed nearly $40mm in signed commitments and targeting a March 2014 close.

Financial description

The fund makes equity investments in early and growth stage companies. Initial investments range from $1M - $2M for early stage companies, and $2M to $5M for growth stage companies. The fund will invest up to $10M over the total life of an investment.
EIF seeks a meaningful stake in portfolio companies that can be secured for a reasonable amount of capital and which are not dependent on massive additional financing for success. It also pursues opportunities in which multiple attractive exit opportunities have been identified and may be achieved in a reasonable period of time.
The EIF will not invest in a technology or entrepreneur in need of a company to be built around it. The fund seeks to invest in established companies, with proven technology, solid management teams, and well thought-out business plans.

Impact Performance


Impact thesis

The Fund seeks to invest in companies and projects that contribute substantively to reducing or ameliorating key threats to ecosystem integrity including: land fragmentation and conservation, depletion of productive capacity, or contamination of land, air, and water. This is the same strategy as Fund I, only on a larger scale.
