Edit this fund

The Kranenburg Fund invests in innovative privately-held and public companies in North America and Europe. We target long-term appreciation while maintaining the clear strategic objective of achieving above average risk-adjusted absolute rates of return.

Financial description

The Fund invests in concentrated equity positions of privately-held and public growth companies, and in senior debt of growth and middle-market companies.
Our carefully-selected portfolio companies are fundamentally undervalued and are poised to capitalize on substantial growth opportunities to become market-leading ventures in their industry sectors; they are companies with a unique and compelling business model. The Fund's portfolio companies range from entrepreneurial enterprises working to reach the next critical milestone to mature companies.
Our senior-level team - pulled from the financial, high-tech, environmental, biotech, and scientific sectors - applies its operational, technical, and investment expertise to evaluate opportunities for the Fund and often assists the portfolio companies with strategic decisions and/or funding options.

Impact Performance


Impact thesis

The Kranenburg Fund is an investment fund that identifies and supports innovative and values-driven businesses and entities. Through our dedication to investors and our collaboration with colleagues and portfolio companies, we seek to fundamentally improve the lives of individuals and communities.
Investments are screened for social and environmental benefits. The Fund promotes energy efficiency and alternative energy though investments in the various forms of alternative energy, such as solar thermal, geothermal, fuel cell, co-generation and solar-pv. Two current portfolio companies include: (1) Pax Water which improves water quality by mixing municipal water without the need for chemicals; and, (2) Terracycle. As Chairman of Terracycle’s Board of Directors, I directed the company to improve sustainability objectives by expanding from a plant food product line to upcycling of multiple product lines that divert waste from landfills to reuse in the form of new products.
